A SONG AGAINST GROCERS


      God made the wicked Grocer

      For a mystery and a sign,

      That men might shun the awful shop

      And go to inns to dine....

      The righteous minds of innkeepers

      induce them now and then

      To crack a bottle with a friend

      Or treat unmoneyed men,

      But who hath seen the grocer

      Treat housemaids to his teas

      Or crack a bottle of fish-sauce

      or stand a man a cheese?
       

    G.K. Chesterton, A Song Against Grocers
