The Lay of the Lonesome Lung – 101229593_p10

An illustrated poem depicts a man looking at pyramids and the sphinx which advertise Wistar's Balsam of Cherry in silhouette.

Poor Bung ran off and hid
In Egypt, to escape admonishing;
He saw a pyramid,
And cried aloud, “This is astonishing!
For on its sides, in letters mighty, very,
He read, “Try Wistar’s Balsam of Wild Cherry.”
