    Correct Answer
    Tom

    shaved
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Tom, curled, lambs, shaved." In the poem "The Chimney Sweeper," the speaker is referring to a boy named Tom who cried when his head, which was curled like a lamb's back, was shaved. This line portrays the harsh reality of child labor during the Industrial Revolution, where young boys were forced to work as chimney sweepers and had their heads shaved to prevent lice infestation. The use of the word "lambs" emphasizes the innocence and vulnerability of these children.
