Works in the Herald 1929
FUDDY, ISN'D ID?
I've just devised a splendid joke,
That makes me rock with laughter,
Against the City Council folk
Who lately have been after
Precautionary measures to
Combat the influenza,
And talk of that they mean to do,
In one long, loud cadenza.
They're planning this and that, with firm
Resolve, nor spare expenses.
So that no influenzal germ
May creep thro' their defences.
And, if the fell disease should poke
A nose within, they'll swot it.
But here's the cream of all the joke:
They've bissed the buzz. I've godd id.
