C&C doom to oxford doggerel poem

Recommended Posts

Davenant’s Doggerel Poem. 
 

The debtors song.

When you must pay for what you owe

Tekeli-li tekeli-li

And debtors know what you don’t show

Tekeli-li tekeli-li

In Rh’leh they don’t delay

Tekeli-li tekeli-li

They look to find the outside way

Tekeli-li tekeli-li

Up above the star filled night

Tekeli-li tekeli-li

Is set askew and lit up bright

Tekeli-li tekeli-li

From above the fair folk come

Tekeli-li tekeli-li

Buzzing like the listing drum

Tekeli-li tekeli-li

And they the say to pay in blood

Tekeli-li tekeli-li

For what you’ve done is raise the flood

Tekeli-li tekeli-li

And open up the hidden door

Tekeli-li tekeli-li

To allow the service of the paw

Tekeli-li tekeli-li

What you owe is so much more

Tekeli-li tekeli-li

Than you could pay with your lords lore

Tekeli-li tekeli-li

Tekeli-li tekeli-li

Now come forth through the door.....
