SERVICE AND THRIFT
THE PIED PIPER OF HAMELIN by ROBERT BROWNING

They wrote the story on a column,
And on the great church window painted
The same, to make the world acquainted
How their children were stolen away
And there it stands to this very day.
And I must not omit to say
That in Transylvania there's a tribe
Of alien people who ascribe
The outlandish ways and dress
On which their neighbors lay such stress,
To their fathers and mothers having risen
Out of some subterraneous prison
Into which they were trepanned
Long time ago in a mighty band,
Out of Hamelin town in Brunswick land,
But how or why, they don't understand.

So Willy, let me and you be wipers
Of scores out with all men-especially pipers;
And whether they pipe us free from rats or from mice,
If we've promised them aught, let us keep our promise!
