“Away He Run”
Tom, Tom, the piper’s son,
Stole a pig, and away he run;
The pig was eat,
And Tom was beat,
And Tom ran crying down the street.

Billy Wipes Out Old Scores
He would walk up and chew the pig-tail off the Chinaman’s head, as he would a straw rope. This would be the worst punishment he could possibly inflict on the Chinaman, and would wipe out old scores.
But what if his rope would not be long enough to reach the sleeping Chinaman. He advanced cautiously, and, oh joy! It would just allow him to touch the Chinaman’s head, and he could chew the cue off close to the scalp, which would make the man more angry than ever.
At first Billy chewed slowly and cautiously for fear of waking the Chinaman, but he soon saw he need have no fear. He was not to be awakened even by a thunder-bolt.

It was a sad little Pig that took his place on the stool in the corner of the school-room. And when his little sister Mary slipped into the room, and wrote upon the black-board behind him, “Jimmie is a bad boy,” he could hardly keep from crying.
Jimmie was not a bad Pig, and was not used to being punished. He did not like to be teased, either.
