Poem by William Cowper
On the High Price of Fish
Cocoa-nut naught, Fish too dear, None must be bought, For us that are here: No lobster on earth, That ever I saw, To me would be worth Sixpence a claw. So dear madam, wait Till fish can be got At a reas'nable rate Whether lobster or not; Till the French and the Dutch Have quitted the seas, And then send as much And as oft as you please.
