|There is nothing on earth that is half so capricious
As the old summer time appetite;
One day a man's stomach will act quite seditious
If he dares to take only a bite.
And the next day his food he so eagerly seizes
He cannot stop eating at all;
If shut in a house that was made of brick cheeses
He would eat a hole right through the wall.
