A Piece of Detective Work

Mm, now let me see,

a moment's thought

should suffice as I do

perceive you to be a

servant lady and cook

of some years in a job

you execute with some

applomb. That apron

gives you away, quite

plainly you cater for say

two single men I'll be

bound. I would warrant

a tenure held for nigh on

twenty or I will hazard erm

more precisely if I should

postulate, two and twenty

years at 221B Baker Street.

Aha! am I not exactly and

exquisitely, precisely right?

And it is a certain Mrs Hudson

I'm addressing, are you not?

our very trusty housekeeper

I can positively presume if

I am not very much mistaken.

And as you and Watson know

that is something I never am.


For sweet heaven's sake Mr Holmes

do we have to go through this same

malarkey each blessed day, really?

Will you want two or one egg today?

My goodness, Frank! How dare you knock a national institution? Have to say I always found Mr Holmes unbearably supercilious ... and therefore took delight in this light-hearted piece!

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim
