331. Epigram at Brownhill Inn
AT 1 Brownhill we always get dainty good cheer,
And plenty of bacon each day in the year;
We’ve a’ thing that’s nice, and mostly in season,
But why always Bacon—come, tell me a reason?
Bacon was the name of a presumably intrusive host.
The lines are said to have “afforded much amusement.
