Poor Child Roland

How he dawdles! Watch the steps [Roland]

Watch the rambling. Watch the weaving. [Beefy ]

Watch him holding to the wall [fester]

Watch the others think of leaving [Irene Adler]

Through his armpit, up the hall... [Apsley]

Yet ... he named a comet bright [Roland]

After his late mentor's daughter [Grayman]

Found a star that none had known [Beefy ]

Floating in his bathing-water [Roland]

Just as well he lived alone... [Beefy ]

How he lingers in our thoughts [Roland]

Thoughts conflicting, thoughts confusing [Beefy ]

Such a winsome woozy chap! [Dassn't Say]

Sometimes wakeful, sometimes snoozing [Beefy ]

Never scared to fake a nap [Anon.]
