Old Tom Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 1

The harridan who holds the inn

      At which I toss a pot,

Is old and uglier than sin,--

      I'm glad she knows me not.

Indeed, for me it's hard to think,

      Although my pow's like snow,

She was the lass so fresh and pink

      I courted long ago.


I wronged her, yet it's sadly true

      She wanted to be wronged:

They mostly do, although 'tis you,

      The male bloke who is thonged.

Well, anyway I left her then

      To sail across the sea,

And no doubt she had other men,

      And soon lost sight of me.

So now she is a paunchy dame

      And mistress of the inn,

With temper tart and tounge to blame,

      Moustache and triple chin.

And though I have no proper home

      Contentedly I purr,

And from my whiskers wipe the foam,

      --Glad I did not wed her.

Yet it's so funny sitting here

      To stare into her face;

And as I raise my mug of beer

      I dream of our disgrace.

And so I come and come each day

      To more and more enjoy

The joke--that fifty years away

      I was her honey boy.
