The Gathering Plague

A plan was laid this summer – silly game, fun game.

The  friends chose their pieces and their plots.

Then the fire burned and the friends fumed — the Fly! He must be stopped!

The election neared and the plan remained a plan – silly game, fun game.

Now the Fly is in the Parlour and the best tramped in the floor.

The Spider echoes Raven and cries “Never more!”

The plan is hatched – hard game, serious game.

The Rat and Roach are Spider’s friends and Mouse is hanging by

To rid the People’s Parlour of that wicked, wicked Fly.
