(To the lady behind me)


Dear madam you have seen this play:

I never saw it till today

You know the details of the plot

But let me tell u I do not


The author seeks to keep from me

The murderer’s identity

And you’re not a friend of his

If you keep shouting who it is

The actors in their funny way


Have several funny things to say,

But they do not amuse me more

If you have said them just before

The merit of the drama lies

I understand, in some surprise;


But the surprise now must be small

Since you have just foretold all.

The lady you have brought with you

Is, I infer, a half wit, too.

But I can understand the piece


Without assistance from your neice.

In short foul woman it would suit

Me just as well if you were mute;

In fact to make my meaning plain,

I trust you will not speak again.


And may I add one human touch?

Don’t breathe upon my neck so much.
