Well, said the boy, if I must say, I sell just what you give away. Why, damn the mill, the miller cried: It faster goes than ever. Youre wrong, youre wrong, his man replied, You ought to dam the river. The Sultans dinner may be spoild, Unless the helps are quick- And Turkey, after being broild, Be given to old Nick. Says Poll to Sue, and reard her crest, And raisd her voice, when you came here, You were so poor and so distressd, You had not got a rag to wear. Sue answerd quick, tis false, you lie- Im scandalized by medling hags, When first I came tis known that I Had nothing else to wear but rags. written to A feiend who had borrowed the paste pot to mend A paper cap. When you want some more paste You can send here in haste, And be welcome if I have it got: But when yonr caps mended--Now dont be offended--Be so kind as to send back the pot. A burlesque.
