          Twaddle had a hovel,
              Twiddle had a palace;
          Twaddle said:  "I'll grovel
              Or he'll think I bear him malice" --
      A sentiment as novel
          As a castor on a chalice.
  
          Down upon the middle
              Of his legs fell Twaddle
          And astonished Mr. Twiddle,
              Who began to lift his noddle.
          Feed upon the fiddle-
              Faddle flummery, unswaddle
      A new-born self-sufficiency and think himself a [mockery.]
