Maud went to college Sadie stayed home

Maud went to college.
Sadie stayed home.
Sadie scraped life
With a fine toothed comb.
She didn 't leave a tangle in
Her comb found every strand.
Sadie was one of the livingest chicks
In all the land.
Sadie bore two babies
Under her maiden name.
Maud and Ma and Papa
Nearly died of shame.
When Sadie said her last so long
Her girls struck out from home.
Sadie left as heritage
Her fine toothed comb.
Maud who went to college
Is a thin brown mouse.
She is living all alone
In this old house..
