It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.

I agree with Ramesh T A thatthis little piece here wasn't for all generations to grasp otherwise to modern man this sounds like an unfinished poem without disrespect. I love his Treasure Island though, so much!

There is no evidence whatsoever that this poem is an ironical plea for the hungry of the world. It comes from A Child's Garden of Verses written for his childhood nurse and when Stevenson was a staunch conservative.
