Remarks

2. ’Ere you ’ave em hall hinterlurk:
    B. looked so earnestly, ’e never blink,
    ’Ere Ladies and Gents, his a Siamese Brother
    Wich ’e is considered hexactly like the hother
    And that’s what the name Siamese they owe to:
    Says the one, that’s the feller as I am ’is photo.
    ’Ere you see Methuelah between ’enhencaged,
    Hits seldom you ketch ’im not elsewhere hengaged.

    ’Ere you see Pooh-bah, a real [Daimio]
    You can’t see the base-ball as ’es got to throw
    Next the Giant’s feet from his body’s eloped;
    On ’is lap sits a feller as is telescoped!!!
    When the show was done, they all sat & wrangled
    How on earth to get their legs disentangled.
