Summary:
Vinegar valentine, with image of a man at workbench cutting tin with large shears. Poem below image: "You miserable clipper of tin! / You boozy old swiller of gin! / There's naught in the way of a sin / That you're not a graduate in. / But some-day the Devil will pin / You, and, tucking you under his fin, / In spite of your howls and your din, / Down to Sheol with you he will spin."
