The Pieman [poem by C. J. Dennis]

[Editor: This poem by C. J. Dennis was published in A Book for Kids, 1921.]

The Pieman

I’d like to be a pieman, and ring a little bell,
Calling out, “Hot pies! Hot pies to sell!”
Apple-pies and Meat-pies, Cherry-pies as well,
Lots and lots and lots of pies — more than you can tell.
Big, rich Pork-pies! Oh, the lovely smell!
But I wouldn’t be a pieman if . . . .
I wasn’t very well.

Would you?
