Curfew' Or 'The Ten O'Clock Jump'

The Bean Stalker

July 23, 1943

Mimi and Doris were having a spin
At Dexter's, the bakery, and the Dutch Inn.
They were laughing and eating, and time it did fly,
When they suddenly realized curfew had flown by.
It was five after ten, and Mimi was shocked.
"What shall we do? The door will be locked."
Sadly they started to ring the door bell,
Rehearsing the story they were to tell,
But luck had sighted them from afar
For low and behold! The door was ajar.
