    • Lord Lundy Who was too Freely Moved to Tears, and thereby ruined his Political Career. Hillair Belloc.
...Or if his father Lord Dunquerque
Said “Hi!” in a Commanding Tone,
“Hi, Lundy! Leave the cat alone!”
Lord Lundy, letting go its tail,
would raise a terrible wail
as his grandpa moved the Duke
to utter the severe rebuke:
“When I, sir, was a little boy,
an animal was not a toy!”
