Satan's Reminiscences

Satan's Reminiscences.

"Gymnasium rule No. 18: No women students are allowed in the gymnasium after 5 p.m."

"Do the professors fear the happening of some scene such as is depicted?"

Kind friends beware the silken mare
Beset with subtle scheming;
With crime and bloodshed everywhere,
And here and there blaspheming.
Ourselves we made our chief delight
The moral code perverting;
In fact, you see us here to-night
For flirting, flirting, flirting!

Nine days we fell,—on awkward fall
Through fathomless abysses;
It seemed a shame to come at all
For merely stealing kisses.
I suffer still from nervous shock,—
It's somewhat disconcerting
To catch it hot—like Amy Bock,
For flirting, flirting, flirting!

One man prefers to beat his wife,
Another hatches treasons;
My friends are here for taking life
And other paltry reasons.
Above I shocked my maiden aunts,
And found it most diverting:—
I don't suppose they had the chance
Of flirting, flirting, flirting!

I think I fairly earned my fate,
For when I could I kissed, 'em:
Though do not seek to emulate
My fascinating system.
But if you do, my last advice
Admits no controverting,
Variety is very nice
In flirting, flirting, flirting!
