Compass, Sextant, Wheel, and Capstan
Guide the Leper Lecturn Yeoman
While Hammer, Anvil, Lock and Key
"Inverse du Capitaine" decree!
Long climbs Milk-Mother with Glad Tidings
'Pon two Horses, swift to th'Assizes riding
There Hemlock sits atop a Steeple
& vents his Spleen 'gainst all the people
Trepaner courts the Fishes Favour
To be a questing Abbot's saviour
And 'pon the Ocean to bestow
Protection til, at last, Land Ho!
Cold blows the North Wind, warm the South
West guides the Narwhal to New World's mouth
East to Ararat and Arabie
Where Lute&Bellows play a Birthday reverie
The Old Hag, dreading Night, cries "Woe!
To Franco War, the Bugle calls Curmudgeo!
He fights the Bastard Line of Haversacks
And dines on Hissoppe, Hazelnuts and wax!"
Come Flibbergibbet! Come PeakÚd Cap!
Come a century of buttons! Come Mappa
Mundi! Maketh whole th'Arena proper
Thus ends this Twaddling of the Copper.
(Robert of Mead, SV)
