  Where�s the rhyme to fit him?)
Best let alone,
The task, I own;
  I know not where to hit him!

Tousey�ll tell us,
� No! he�ll sell us
  All the news that�s going,

Are just the sort, 
  When in a scrape you�re taken,
Without a doubt,
To help you out,
  By sowing of your bakin�.

  With rabely-found completeness.
But, judged by sound,
He will be found,
  The very fount of sweetness.
