    And take to light claret instead of pale ale;
    Look down with an utter contempt upon butter,
    And never touch bread till its toasted--or stale.

Ushering the mutton; with a short-legged hen,
If we can get her, full of eggs, and then,

Is not to be despaired of for our money;
And though fowl now be scarce, yet there are clerks,
The sky not falling, think we may have larks.
