David Law (Peleg Arkwright) Proudfit. (1842–1897)
 
 
1
    A man sat on a rock and sought
  Refreshment from his thumb;
A dinotherium wandered by
  And scared him some.
His name was Smith. The kind of rock
  He sat upon was shale.
One feature quite distinguished him—
  He had a tail.
          Prehistoric Smith.
2
    Nature abhors imperfect work
  And on it lays her ban;
And all creation must despise
  A tailless man.
          Prehistoric Smith.
