    1. The Vulture
    by Hilaire Belloc

    The vulture eats between his meals,
    And that’s the reason why
    He very, very rarely feels
    As well as you or I.

    His eye is dull. His head is bald,
    His neck is growing thinner,
    Oh, what a lesson for us all,
    To only eat at dinner!

    2. Celery
    by Ogden Nash

    Celery, raw,
    Develops the jaw,
    But celery, stewed,
    Is more quietly chewed.
