Tells how the drudging goblin sweat,
To earn his cream-bowl duly set,
"I'd like to taste," he said, "the inside of your mouth. God, how I'd like to be a goblin-sized Gulliver and explore that cave." ...
Be thou a spirit of health, or goblin damned,
Bring with thee airs from heaven, or blasts from hell,
Away with us he's going,
The solemn-eyed:
Oh, a capital ship for an ocean trip,
Was the Walloping Window Blind;
The night was thick and hazy
When the "Piccadilly Daisy"
we carry home as prizes
Funny bugs, of handy sizes,
Just to give the day a scientific tone.
The boatswain's mate was very sedate,
Yet fond of amusement, too;
The captain sat in a commodore's hat
And dined in a royal way
we cast the vessel ashore
On the Gulliby Isles where the Pooh-pooh smiles,
And the Rumbletum bunders roar.
