Poem Title:  A Foot-Rule

Poem Category:  Humerous/ Funny Poems

Poet:  John Bannister Tabb

Poet Biography: 
John Bannister Tabb (1845-1909)was an accomplished poet and educater, born near Richmond, Virginia.

Biped, or Quadruped,
Two feet or four:
That's the standing rule of feet
All the world o'er.

Two feet, or four feet,
Never one or three.
"Nay," said the Yard-stick,
"Don't forget me!"

"Ho!" cried another voice,
A one-foot thing,
"I'm the Rule of Measurement;
'Every inch a King.'"
