    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteFASHION, n. A despot whom the wise ridicule and obey.



A king there was who lost an eye In some excess of passion; And straight his courtiers all did try To follow the new fashion.



Each dropped one eyelid when before The throne he ventured, thinking

'Twould please the king. That monarch swore He'd slay them all for winking.



What should they do? They were not hot To hazard such disaster; They dared not close an eye --dared not See better than their master.



Seeing them lacrymose and glum, A leech consoled the weepers: He spread small rags with liquid gum And covered half their peepers.



The court all wore the stuff, the flame Of royal anger dying. That's how court-plaster got its name Unless I'm greatly lying. --Naramy Oof
