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?


 Note 1.
Bacon was the name of a presumably intrusive host.
The lines are said to have “afforded much amusement.
”—Lang.
