The Pirates of Paddyland, and the Slave of Duty
William (the Slave of Duty).-It is my duty to tell you that you are too tender-hearted. ; Pirates (Landlords).-But hang it all, you would not have us absolutely merciless.
William - There's my difficulty ; until this passes I would ; after it passes, I wouldn't. Was ever man placed in so delicate a situation. But to-morrow, my friends, I leave you for ever. ; Pirates - This is quite unaccountable ; a keener hand at an eviction, or at capturing a Suspect, never signed a warrant. ; William - Yes ; but to-morrow my obligation to you ceases. Individually I love you all with affection unspeakable, but collectivley I look upon you with a disgust that amounts to absolute detestation. Oh! pity me, my beloved friends, if I shall feel it my duty to devote myself heart and soul to your extermination. ; Pirates-Poor fellow! poor fellow! (All weep).
