For I doth play the fool, don't think it too cruel, if I let you all in on the joke.

With a jingle and clang, a new dirge is sang, thank the gods that you're not broke.

Slight of hand missed, blow all a wet kiss, there and back from the hereafter.

A cheshire grin, festooned baton spin, wink and nod to the back rafters.


Too bad they're empty.
