Is hissing 'round my ears.
Indeed, the pots do joudly ring.
While brooms in threatening* fly,
And those who ilield the dish-cloth flag
For vengeance hourly sigh.

No wonder they feel blue.

And raised this awful noise—

Like barking dogs don't harm.

With "praties" in between.
And a peace-offering try to raaks
To keep away the steam.
