Mister Ron's Basement #1526
We have featured funny stories by Thomas L. Masson and will continue to do so in the future, as there are many good ones still available.
However, this week, we are reading some of his fun poetry, from the book 'In Merry Measure' published in 1904.
What happens when a young miss withholds her kisses for too long? Find out in the poem 'To A Fair Saint.' Then three card sharps learn about playing poker with another young miss who knows 'nothing' about the game in 'Their Lesson.'
Time: approx four and a half minutes
