  • My Lord Tomnoddy is thirty-four;
    The Earl can last but a few years more.
    My Lord in the Peers will take his place:
    Her Majesty’s councils his words will grace.
    Office he’ll hold and patronage sway;
    Fortunes and lives he will vote away;
    And what are his qualifications?—ONE!
    He’s the Earl of Fitzdotterel’s eldest son.
    • My Lord Tomnoddy.
