Oh, a capital ship for an ocean trip,
Was the Walloping Window Blind;
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.
"Then let us play at queen and king
As down the garden walks we go."
It was a tall young oysterman lived by the river-side,
His shop was just upon the bank, his boat was on the tide;
Alas for those two loving ones! she waked not from her swound,
And he was taken with the cramp, and in the waves was drowned;
I think remorse ought to stop biting the consciences that feed it.
One man's remorse is another man's reminiscence.
Remorse is a violent dyspepsia of the mind.
