1 Cautionary Tales by Hilaire Belloc ( ) Jim, Who ran away from his nurse, and was eaten by a Lion There was a Boy whose name was Jim; His friends were very good to him. They gave him Tea, and Cakes, and Jam, And slices of delicious Ham, And Chocolate with pink inside, And little Tricycles to ride, And read him stories through and through, And even took him to the zoo- But there it was the dreadful Fate Befell him, which I now relate. You know at least you ought to know, For I have often told you so- That Children never are allowed To leave their Nurses in a Crowd; Now this was Jim s especial Foible, He ran away when he was able, And on this inauspicious day He slipped his hand and ran away! He hadn t gone a yard when Bang! With open jaws a Lion sprang, And hungrily began to eat The Boy: beginning at his feet. Now just imagine how it feels When first your toes and then your heels, And then by gradual degrees, Your shins and ankles, calves and knees, Are slowly eaten, bit by bit. No wonder Jim detested it! No wonder that he shouted HI! The honest keeper heard his cry, Though very fat he almost ran To help the little gentleman. Ponto! he ordered as he came (For Ponto was the Lion s name), Ponto! he cried, with angry Frown. Let go, Sir! Down, Sir! Put it down! The Lion made a sudden Stop, He let the Dainty Morsel drop, And slunk reluctant to his cage, Snarling with Disappointed Rage. But when he bent him over Jim The Honest Keeper s Eyes were dim. The Lion having reached his head, The Miserable Boy was dead.
2 When Nurse informed his parents, they Were more Concerned than I can say:- His Mother, as she dried her eyes, Said, Well- it gives me no surprise, He would not do as he was told! His Father, who was self-controlled, Bade all the children round attend To James miserable end, And always keep a hold of Nurse For fear of finding something worse. Matilda.Who Told Lies and was Burned to Death Matilda told such dreadful lies, It made one Gasp and Stretch one s Eyes; Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth, Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth, Attempted to Believe Matilda: The effort very nearly killed her, And would have done so, had not She Discovered this Infirmity. For once, towards the Close of Day, Matilda, growing tired of play, And finding she was left alone, Went tiptoe to the Telephone, And summoned the Immediate Aid Of London s Noble Fire Brigade. Within an hour the Gallant Band Were pouring in on every hand, From Putney, Hackney Down and Bow With Courage high and Hearts a-glow They Galloped, roaring through the Town, Matilda s House is Burning Down! Inspired by British Cheers and Loud Proceeding from the Frenzied Crowd, They ran their ladders through a score Of windows on the Ball-Room Floor; And took Particular Pains to Souse The Pictures up and down the House, Until Matilda s Aunt succeeded In showing them they were not needed. And even then she had to pay To get the men to go away! It happened that a few weeks later Her Aunt was off to the Theatre To see that Interesting Play The Second Mrs Tanqueray. She had refused to take her niece To hear this Entertaining Piece: A Deprivation Just and Wise
3 To Punish her for Telling Lies. That night a fire did break out- You shout have heard Matilda Shout! You should have heard her Scream and Bawl, And throw the windows up and call To People passing on the Street- (The rapidly increasing Heat Encouraging her to obtain Their Confidence) - but all in vain! For every time she shouted Fire! They only answered Little Liar! And therefore when her Aunt returned, Matilda, and the House were burned. Rebecca Who slammed doors for fun and perished miserably A trick that everyone abhors In little girls is slamming Doors. A Wealthy Baker s Little Daughter Who lived in Palace Green, Bayswater (By name Rebecca Offendort), Was given to this Furious Sport. She would deliberately go And Slam the door like Billy-Ho! To make her Uncle Jacob start. She was nor really bad at heart, But only rather rude and wild: She was an aggravating child. It happened that a Marble Bust Of Abraham was standing just Above the Door this little Lamb Had carefully prepared to Slam, And Down it came! It knocked her flat! It laid her out! She looked like that. Her funeral Sermon (which was long And followed by a Sacred Song) Mentioned her Virtues, it is true, But dwelt upon her Vices too, And showed the Dreadful End of One Who goes and slams the door for fun. The children who were brought to hear The awful tale from far and near Were much impressed, and inly swore They never more would slam the Door. - As often they had done before.
