Now iffy and biffy were fairies of a most peculiar sort
And they'd often spend time on the face of a dime talking of fine drinks like port
But since iffy and biffy were poor folk, just that dime and some pie in the sky
They'd just sit there all talk and the people would mock how they'd never be able to buy.
And one day just as this was occuring, young iffy to biffy did say
"sure'n it would be grand if some 'un tripped in the sand and rolled a few coins out this way."
"it's true, t'would be grand," said old biffy, "to have all that cash quick to hand,
But so often I think, that to order the drink, so much taller than this we'd need stand."
"alas, tis too true," said young iffy, "for the bar we'd not reach as we are."
And it soon was decided that funds undivided were better for ladders by far.
