DEVIL DICTIONARY

close-fisted

adj. Unduly desirous of keeping that which many meritorious persons wish to obtain.


"Close-fisted Scotchman!" Johnson cried
To thrifty J. Macpherson;
"See me -- I'm ready to divide
With any worthy person."
Sad Jamie: "That is very true --
The boast requires no backing;
And all are worthy, sir, to you,
Who have what you are lacking."
Anita M. Bobe
