"Taffy (ret.)" © wood engraving (ed. 35) image: 5 x 4 in. $60.00 (go to "Hi There" for purchase information)

Vigilantism, vengeance and revenge; they're all here. If you want your kiddies to grow up solving their problems in the way of the old American West, read 'em this one! But make sure you teach 'em to sleep with one eye open because Taffy didn't like that beating on the head and he's not likely to let it rest, even though he's old and retired!

 

TAFFY

Taffy was a Welshman,

Taffy was a thief;

Taffy came to my house,

And stole a piece of beef;

I went to Taffy's house,

Taffy wasn't home,

Taffy came to my house,

And stole a marrow bone.

I went to Taffy's house,

Taffy was in bed,

I took the marrow bone

And beat about his head.
