The Grandiloquent Goat by Carolyn Wells

A very grandiloquent Goat
Sat down to a gay table d’hote;
He ate all the corks,
The knives and the forks,
Remarking: “On these things I dote.”

Then, before his repast he began,
While pausing the menu to scan,
He said: “Corn, if you please,
And tomatoes and pease,
I’d like to have served in the can.”
