Matilda, Who told lies and was burned to death written by Hilaire Balloc 1907

 MATILDA
MatildaWho 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.an old
1920's Fire Engine
Within an hour the Gallant Band were pouring in on every hand,
From Putney, Hackney Downs and Bow with Courage high and Hearts aglow
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 Peculiar 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!
