Lord Uncle Tom
by [?]

[Baron Uncle Tom of Maarfontein in the Britains Over Seas]

Lord Uncle Tom was different from
What other nobles are.
For they are yellow or pink, I think,
But he was black as tar.

He had his Father’s debonair
And rather easy pride:
But his complexion and his hair
Were from the mother’s side.

He often mingled in debate
And latterly displayed
Experience of peculiar weight
Upon the Cocoa-trade.

But now He speaks no more. The BILL
Which he could not abide,
It preyed upon his mind until
He sickened, paled, and died.
