Boothby: The Crab and her Daughter.

Not what they hear but what they see,
Will children and domestics be.
A Crab one day her Daughter chid;
"You never do as you are bid,
Have I not told you o'er and o'er,
That awkward gait to use no more?
Learn, ninny, once for all, to know,
Folks forward and not backward go." —
"Mama," says Miss, "how strange you talk!
Have I not learnt from you to walk?
Were I to move the other way,
How could I follow you, I pray?"
