    Alas! my child, where is the Pen
    That can do justice to the Hen?
    Like Royalty, she goes her way,
    Laying foundations every day,
    Though not for Public Buildings, yet
    For Custard, Cake and Omelette.
    Of if too old for such a use
    They have their fling at some abuse,
    As when to censure Plays Unfit
    Upon the stage they make a Hit
    Or at elections seal the Fate
    Of an Obnoxious Candidate.
    No wonder, Child, we prize the Hen,
    Whose Egg is Mightier than the Pen.
