Here you will find the Poem A Suggestion of poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox
As I go and shop, sir! If a car I stop, sir! Where you chance to sit, And you want to read, sir! Never mind or heed, sir! I?ll not care a bit. For it?s now aesthetic To be quite athletic. That?s our fad, you know. I can hold the strap, sir! And keep off your lap, sir! As we jolting go. If you read on blindly, I shall take it kindly, All the car?s not mine. But, if you sit and stare, sir! At my eyes and hair, sir! I must draw the line. If the stare is meant, sir! For a compliment, sir! As we jog through town, Allow me to suggest, sir! A woman oft looks best, sir! When she?s sitting down.
