[We’ve Respect for the Weak and the “Widdered”]

The Melbourne Trades Hall officials last Thursday considered that the “stewards’ strike was drawing to a close.”

We’ve respect for the weak and the “widdered,”
And the punsters who coffined repose,
But, dash it! Can drawers be considered
As clothes?
