My Latest Faux Pas

The banquet has been
overrun by ruffians
who disguise themselves
in genteel displays
and fancy foolish costumes.

My headache is just
desserts.  I know that.
My fault -I mean it, really.

I can only wish
that somehow you will
find it possible - forgive
me this.  I meant well.

Please remember that.

The illustration is of course a depiction of Toad Hall overrun by stoats and weasels who have taken advantage of Toad's absence. Toad has returned to discover what has befallen his digs. Toad in the meanwhile has fallen in love with the newest rage, the motorcar. Oh bother! Oh blow!


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
