Tearing Books

Have you ever
chanced to look
At a torn and
dirty book?
At a book that’s
ragged, soiled,
Inked and finger-
marked and spoiled?
Who has done it?
Sperry Sprooks!
He’s the Goop
that spoils the books!

from THE GOOP DIRECTORY OF Juvenile Offenders Famous for their Misdeeds and Serving as a Salutary Example for all Virtuous Children with Pictures by GELETT BURGESS (1913)
