A BAD BREAK! by W.T. Goodge

The preacher quoted, and the cranks
   Among his congregation smiled,
"How sharper than a serpent's thanks
   It is to have a toothless child."

He saw he erred, his eye grew wild, He frowned upon the mirthful ranks: "How toothless than a serpent's child It is to have a sharper's thanks!"
