PUBLIC NOTICE.—This is to state,
That these are the specimens left at the gate
Of Pinafore Palace, exact to date,
In the hands of the porter, Curlypate,
Who sits in his plush on a chair of state,
By somebody who is a candidate
For the Office of Lilliput Laureate.
“Where does Pinafore Palace stand?
Right in the middle of Lilliput Land.”
“We’re bound for Pinafore Palace, sir,”
They say to the smiling gatekeeper.
“Do we need, if you please, an entrance ticket
Before we pass through your magic wicket?”
“Oh, no, little Prince and Princess dear,
All pinafores freely enter here!”
