Dot Your i’s and Cross Your t’s, Mary!

LAZY Mary Ann Dees
Never dotted her i’s nor crossed her t’s,
So the letters resolved they would give her no e’s,
And they fed her on pods without any p’s,
And at last they banished her over the e’s
To the kingdom of fogs that is known as Queen V’s.

The Atlanta Constitution (Atlanta, Georgia) Oct 19, 1881
