by: Hilaire Belloc (1870-1953)
- ord Heygate had a troubled face,
- His furniture was commonplace
- The sort of Peer who well might pass
- For someone of the middle class.
- I do not think you want to hear
- About this unimportant Peer,
- So let us leave him to discourse
- About Lord Epsom and his horse.
