The Naughty Preposition
by Morris Bishop


I lately lost a preposition:
 It hid, I thought, beneath my chair.
And angrily I cried: ``Perdition!
 Up from out of in under there!''


Correctness is my vade mecum,
 And straggling phrases I abhor;
And yet I wondered: ``What should he come
 Up from out of in under for?''
