A Dane in Pain

Jack Sprat can eat no fat,
For Jack was born a Dane
Who can’t afford the fatty tax;
He lives on fruit and grain.

Jack’s wife would give her life
For marbled meat to carve,
But with the hefty fatty tax
The poor old dear might starve.

Jack’s kin are happy when
Their store is filled with lard,
But now the family must survive
On butter squash and chard.
