  1. "A loaf of bread," O Docker said,
    "Is what we chiefly need:
    Pepper and vinegar besides
    Are very good indeed--"

  2. "O Oysters," said the Tillerman,
    "You've had a pleasant run!
    Shall we be trotting home again?'
    But answer came there none--
    And this was scarcely odd, because
    They'd eaten every one.

  3. Charming oysters I cry:
    My masters, come buy,
    So plump and so fresh,
    So sweet is their flesh,
    No Colchester oyster
    Is sweeter and moister:
    Your stomach they settle,
    And rouse up your mettle:
    They'll make you a dad
    Of a lass or a lad;
    And madam your wife
    They'll please to the life;
    Be she barren, be she old,
    Be she slut, or be she scold,
    Eat my oysters, and lie near her,
    She'll be fruitful, never fear her.

    Jonathan Swift
