There is Book made up of Books,

It condemns wrong, toward heaven looks,

To be great-minded daily read It.

To be long-wise you should heed It.

Don’t listen to modernist crooks.

David from throwing away his life;  He could stay in England and be

somebody.  What is that brother’s name?  Few know, or frankly, care –

today he is simply known as – – – David Livingstone’s brother.
