JUSTICE AND HER ALLY
THE SPIRIT OF SCOTLAND YARD
Justice:--"Just as useful, and infinitely cheaper."


Justice and Her Ally.
(SEE CARTOON.)

HOW little or how much
   Are we supposed to owe
To the London police
In keeping the peace?
   That's what we want to know.

And does the gallant force
   Sufficient skill bestow

On hindering crime
In the dark night-time?
   That's what we want to know.

The spirit of Scotland Yard
   May seem to live and grow;
But is it the best
In which one could invest?
   That's what we want to know.

Is Warren the right man there,
   Or would a dumb scarecrow

(Not receiving a screw)
Just as usefully do?
   That's what we want to know.
