    Whoe'er has gone thro' London street,
    Has seen a butcher gazing at his meat,
    And how he keeps
    Gloating upon a sheep's
    Or bullock's personals, as if his own;
    How he admires his halves
    And quarters--and his calves,
    As if in truth upon his own legs grown.

Who finds the heifer dead and bleeding fresh
And sees fast-by a butcher with an axe,

Who finds the heifer dead and bleeding fresh
And sees fast-by a butcher with an axe,
But will suspect 'twas he that made the slaughter?
