for the benefit of mr. kite
there will be a show tonight
the hendersons will all be there.
later pablo fanques fair;
what a scene.
over men and horses, hoops and garders,
lastly, through a hog’s head of real fire;
in this way mr. k will challenge the world.
the celebrated mr. k
performs his feat on sat*rday
at bishop’s gate.
the hendersons will dance and sing
as mr. kite flies through the ring.
don’t be late!
misters k and h *ssure the public
their production will be second to none
and, of course, henry the horse dances the waltz.
the band begins at ten to six
when mr. k performs his tricks
without a sound
and mr. h will demonstrate;
ten summersets he’ll undertake
on solid ground.
they’ve been some days in preparation.
a splendid time is guaranteed for all
and tonight mr. kite is topping the bill.
