He Dug a Pit and Fell into it Himself

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“A wayward youth in mischief takes delight, / A trick to put one in a sorry plight, / He deeply digs a pit; covers it all o’er, / And thinks he’ll have him in his power; / But now, while he on this way is strolling, / Into his own trap, see now he’s falling."—Barber, 1857
