Roger And The Poultry

Irish Humour Home




There happened, while Swift was at Laracor, the sale of a farm and
stock, the farmer being dead. Swift chanced to walk past during the
auction just as a pen of poultry had been put up. Roger bid for them,
and was overbid by a farmer of the name of Hatch. What, Roger, won't
you buy the poultry? exclaimed Swift. No, sir, said Roger, I see
they are just a'going to Hatch.
