A Wasp on a Frolic
A caricature celebrating the victory of the USS Wasp over the HMS Frolic and the accompanying rhyme."A Wasp took a Frolic and met Johnny Bull,Who always fights best when his belly is full.The Wasp thought him hungry by his mouth open wide,So, his belly to fill, put a sting in his side"
Benson John Lossing, ed. Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (vol. 10) (New York, NY: Harper and Brothers, 1912)
