While we’re at it

How can Herbie’s Handicrafts
charge so much for string?
Oh, and while we’re at it,
here’s another thing:

Have you ever noticed
Herbie always has a flask?
Oh, and while we’re at it,
I’ve often meant to ask:

Is that really Herbie’s daughter,
or some common floozy Miss?
Oh, and while we’re at it,
let me ask you this:

Has Herbie ever been to jail
for poisoning household pets?
Oh, and while we’re at it,
I haven’t finished yet:

Is he on the run from justice,
— he never seems to smile?
Oh, and while we’re at it,
ponder this a while:

Have you ever noticed
that he has a funny walk?
Not for me to say, of course,
I’m not one to talk.
