DAME DUCK'S LECTURE.
"Now, when you reach the poultry-yard,
The hen-wife, Molly Head,
Will feed you, with the other fowls,
On bran and mashed-up bread;
I hope that all of you,
Will gobble up the food as fast
As well-bred ducks should do.
Unless it is too small;
In that case, I should use my foot,
And overturn it all."
And found the plan so good,
That, from that day, the other fowls
Got hardly any food.
