' (-A parody, after Edgar Allan Poe.)
The lady snores - Oh, may her drone,
As it is sonorous, be it boring!
God save me from exciting snoring!
And if I to the 'fridge might creep,
Then be her sleep both sound and deep;
For she has said that I must diet,
And so I'll slip away so quiet -
Some grateful grub I'll gather up,
Cold meat devour in midnight drear -
- She's nearly starved me to the bone!
