Long ago, there were no halls only open stages
If audience delighted, they would say 'once more.'
The actors went on acting for meagre wages.
Once, there was a full swing episode of folklore
Some guys went on saying 'once more' over again
Actors knew that they shouldn't offend audience
One actor was irked and decided to restrain
With cheerful face and showing utmost tolerance
Stated humbly, "one who says 'once more' has to pay"
Nice melodrama, the audience fell silent
No' once more' came until the end of the display
It was ended up smoothly without a complaint.
