I'Ve A Pain In My Head

Rating: 3.0
'I've a pain in my head'
Said the suffering Beckford;
To her Doctor so dread.
'Oh! what shall I take for't?'

Said this Doctor so dread
Whose name it was Newnham.
'For this pain in your head
Ah! What can you do Ma'am?'

Said Miss Beckford, 'Suppose
If you think there's no risk,
I take a good Dose
Of calomel brisk.'--

'What a praise worthy Notion.'
Replied Mr. Newnham.
'You shall have such a potion
And so will I too Ma'am.'

First beckford and newnham both are illusioned name acording to old English, secondly the poem indicates a great mixture of pun and anticlimax. its very humor when so called doctor requestions the patient for possible remedy instead of himself giving solutions.
