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
