Little Willie, with a curse
Threw the teapot at the nurse.
When it struck her on the nose,
His father cheered, “How straight he throws!”
And what I believe to be an earlier version:
Willie, with a frightful curse,
Flung the coffee-mill at nurse,
As it caught her on the nose,
Father said, “How straight he thows”
