'The Snorer ' (-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!
