Alternate Author Name(s): Ingoldsby, Thomas
Subject(s): Food & Eating


A FRIEND I met some half-hour since--
'Good-morrow, Jack!' quoth I;
The new-made Knight, like any Prince,
Frowned, nodded, and passed by;
When up came Jem--'Sir John, your slave!'
'Ah, James; we dine at eight--
Fail not--'(low bows the supple knave)
'Don't make my lady wait.'
The King can do no wrong? As I'm a sinner,
He's spoilt an honest tradesman and my dinner.
