The Dining Room
"the only place where men are
bored during the first hour"
"How sad it is to sit and pine,
The long half-hour before we dine!
Upon our watches oft to look,
Then wonder at the clock and cook
And strive to laugh in spite of
But laughter forced soon quits the room,
And leaves it in it's former gloom."
