Severe Criticism

Synopsis:

(Dedicated to “H.W., Esq.”)

Have you heard the latest paroquet?
Just think of it, just think of it,
Old Harry is his soubriquet,
Just think of it, just think of it,
His language is alarming
His manners are so charming
All timid spritis calming
Just think of it.

Oh, hasn’t he a nice sweet temper
Just think of it, just think of it,
Like a dog that’s got distemper
Just think of it, just think of it,
He is so full of passion
And raves in such a fashio
Taht he loses all compassion
Just think of it.

Oh, pity the old man’s underlings,
Just think of it, just think of it,
Choice epithets at them he slings
Just think of it, just think of it,
They have all such jolly times,
As he anmed their little crimes,
Wishing them in hotter climes
Just think of it.
