Poems of Home: III. Fun for Little Folk
Good King Arthur
Anonymous
 
WHEN good King Arthur ruled the land,
    He was a goodly king:
He stole three pecks of barley meal,
    To make a bag-pudding.
 
A bag-pudding the king did make,        5
    And stuffed it well with plums;
And in it put great lumps of fat,
    As big as my two thumbs.
 
The king and queen did eat thereof,
    And noblemen beside;        10
And what they could not eat that night,
    The queen next morning fried.
