An Old Gentleman Has Lunch in Boston With a Man

    Who Was a Year or Two Behind Him at Harvard


                                    Started at Milton High School.  Mother said,

                                    "We've got to get him out of there."  So I

                                    went to Exeter to look at them.

                                    Went to Lawrenceville, where they looked at me.

                                    Went to Hill for a week and left, and

                                    Went to Choate and stayed.

                                    I went to Princeton, didn't graduate, and

                                    went to Harvard and did.

                                    Yale for law, of course.

                                                                            And soon

                                    I'll go to Heaven, I believe.
