Said Mrs. Dobbs, in a voice not sweet:
“Why, it isn’t fit for the pigs to eat!”
And I doubt if an artist would e’er be able
To depict their looks as they left the table.
Said Sally: “I thought it would be so nice!
But I must have salted that pudding twice!”
And none of the family mentioned that they
Had a hand in spoiling the dinner that day.
Christmas Greetings, and may your pudding be perfectly seasoned!
