John Bannister Tabb

A Family Failing

 Next Poem          

Sneezed the Pepper, "Sister Salt
Bids me say 'tis not her fault
That she's out of place to-day;
Turning, just below the Caster,
She upset, and the disaster
Holds her back in Mustard-plaster
That she cannot scrape away."
"That trick of turning round she got,"
Said Vinegar, "from Mrs. Lot."
