*I am a Colonial and have heard the English say

  • "Colonials have no manners," your advice then lend me pray
  • One day my pathway led me into a lonely wood
  • T'was far away but fine the day and good
  • And yet your English climate is full of whims and so
  • Down poured the rain and I must into shelter go
  • I meet another student in the same plight as I
  • The nearest refuge that we find is but an old pigsty
  • A placid Sow lies sleeping upon the scattered straw
  • We enter, and take shelter within the open door
  • She shares with us her little pen, hospitable and kind
  • For full an hour while lasts the shower
  • We warmth and shelter find
  • Once more into that wood I wend my lonely way
  • Once more comes on a heavy shower from the sty I'm far away
  • But today I need not flee my umbrella is with me
  • Now while I shelter thus enjoy I hear a grunt close by
  • Good Mrs. Sow is waddling past the owner of the sty
  • The rain is pouring down her back and dropping from her ears
    *And rolling down her fatted cheeks like showers of briny tears
  • And this is now my question answear Englishman whilt thow?
  • "Should I share my umbrella with that fat and soaking sow?"
