         What do they think of us?

    A brown spotted lady-bug climbed the dizzy height of a grass blade, and Tom bent down close to it and said, "Lady-bug, lady-bug, fly away home, your house is on fire, your children's alone," and she took wing and went off to see about it -- which did not surprise the boy, for he knew of old that this insect was credulous about conflagrations, and he had practised upon its simplicity more than once.

    Mark Twain. 

    Ladybird, ladybird, fly away home
    Your house is on fire and your children are gone
    All except one, and that's Little Anne
    For she has crept under the warming pan.
