Yea Crawford, the bumptious and big,
A quaint and a rummy old rig,
Agriculture's my forte,
Though 'twould hardly be "thort"
I know a steam plough from a pig.
Once I farmered some crop and some stock,
Which the Government purchased en bloc
And thin novices now
That I知 teaching to plough
With shekels are stuffing my sock.
But though as an expert I shine
In the pumpkin and pork-raising line,
I differ when Hop.
Suggests I should stop
This fever that's ravaging swine.
A STATE SOIL TILLER.
I知 Councillor Cav'nagh Esquire,
But to higher degrees I aspire,
And I'll do all I can
Becoming a man
To set the Swan River on fire.
Both cricket and bowls 1 can play,
While I've pulled a good oar in my day,
And when I orate
I知 down on the slate
As the Deakin of W.A.
I've an eye on the Senate in Vic.,
And if my opponents I lick,
Be certain that "Cav."
Possesses the "sav."
A COMMONWEALTH CANDIDATE.
I知 Slater, Fremantle痴 S.M.,
Whose "side" understrappers condemn,
And the rank-and-file mob
Assert that my job"
Was gotten by sly stratagem.
Though fragile I値l sing a good song
With any that happens along,
While at frauds like the Goose
I can shower abuse
Exceedingly sultry and strong.
And though with the sheelahs I知 shy.
For "skirt" I致e a critical eye,
As witness the winks
I waft to the minx
Who serves in the buffet close by.
A RAILWAY RAJAH.
