(26 March 1859 – 30 April 1936 / Worcestershire)

O Why Do You Walk (a Parody)


O why do you walk through the fields in boots,
Missing so much and so much?
O fat white woman whom nobody shoots,
Why do you walk through the fields in boots,
When the grass is soft as the breast of coots
And shivering-sweet to the touch?

Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
