In wild fields where rabbits play,
Two vying factions meet halfway,
For to mend the pierced ceil'ng high,
Ere the hounds of the House descry.

Of tether'd spending, work and wall,
A deal is struck, agreeing all,
That goat and snail walk arm in arm,
And sheltered be from storm and harm.

Ne'er ventured here such noble feasts,
Of tipping tips in gas-lit wastes,
As gallant troubadour rides hence,
To sing anew 'midst goat and hens.
