The Masque of Balliol (1880)Edit

  • First come I; my name is J-W-TT.
    There's no knowledge but I know it.
    I am master of this college:
    What I don't know isn't knowledge.
  • Roughly, so to say, you know,
    I am N-TTL-SH-P or so;
    You are gated after Hall,
    That's all. I mean that's nearly all.
  • Here am I, the often sat on
    Dancing don; my name is T-TT-N;
    Like old wine in a new bottle
    Is my talk on Aristotle.
