    Though we eat little flesh and drink no wine,
    Yet let's be merry; we'll have tea and toast;
    Custards for supper, and an endless host
    Of syllabubs and jellies and mince-pies,
    And other such ladylike luxuries.

Ushering the mutton; with a short-legged hen,

And though fowl now be scarce, yet there are clerks,
The sky not falling, think we may have larks.
