[blocks in formation]

A Slang Ditty.

Rum coves that relieve us
Of chinkers and pieces,
Is gin’rally lagged,
Or, wuss luck, gits scragged.

Are smashers and divers
And noble contrivers
Not sold to the beaks
By the coppers an' sneaks?

Yet moochin' arch-screevers,
Concoctin' deceivers,
Chaps as reap like their own
What by tothers were sown;

Piratical fakers
Of bosh by the acres,
These muck-worms of trash
Cut, oh, a great dash.

But, there, it don't matter,
Since to cut it still fatter,
By 'ook and by crook
Ve've got up this book.
