Times is Hard (Shithouse)

Please don't burn our shit-house down,
Mother has promised to pay.
Father's away on the ocean wave
And sister's in the family way.

Brother dear has gonorrhea
And times is fucking hard;
So please don't burn our shit-house down
Or we'll all have to shit in the yard.

From Songs from the Front and Rear, Hopkins
Note: Another in the All the World is Desolation vein; makes a
     decent antidote to overdoses of Hard Times, Come Again No
     More, though. RG
