LEVER-SET POCKET WATCHES


The railroads, to protect one from losing correct time,
Required watches with a lever-set,

You had to screw off the crystal to change them --
Some don't understand -- haven't learned yet,

There is nothing so stupid as those who forget
All you've shown them -- I believe it well put

To say nothing surprises me anymore --
Even those who pull the crown out by the root.
