Dewey Doppling knew all the rules
For how to do this and that.
And Dewey corrected rule-breakers
Before the drop of a hat.

There's the example of Kirk Kirpdrock,
Who was dewey's bosom friend.
He said, "Dewey, I'll loan you five."
"The word," said Dewey, "is 'lend'."

Dewey's true love promised that she
Would meet him and run away.
When she arrived in a white dress,
He fled: It was after Labor Day.

The end came when he saw a man
Drop a styrofoam coffee cup.
"Say, there's an anti-litter law,"
Dewey said. "You should pick that up."

The man chortled through broken teeth
And a forward step he took.
He lifted Dewey by his neck
And shook and shook and shook.

When Dewey's brain was scrambled,
The man said, "I believe in rules,
And the one I believe in most is
Never countenance fools."
