As recited with great success by Gus Williams.

It was only a pin
As it lay on the floor,
Shining and bright
As it glistened in the noonday light.

Only a boy.
Yet he saw that pin,
And on its possession became so intent.
That soon both boy and pin alike were bent

Only a chair,
Yet he placed the pin there,
And not one in a thousand could have discerned
That the point of the pin was heavenward turned.

Only a man!
Yet he sat on that chair,
Then he bounced in the air like a cork from a bottle,
And a most unearthly sound came out of his throttle.

Only a yell,
But it was an honest one,
It rent the air-and soon boy, man and chair
Mingled in much confusion were.
