Everybody was looking down when the guests arrived
They came in the hall as they were contrived
First was heard a knock at the door, but luckily
The fellow had also brought the key
Then entered a brace of fowls, straight out of water
Followed by... Wait, was that the long-legged sister?
The next ones went to the corners and were very happy
When the egg and sausage was announced along a cup of tea
Did I mention it was the two fat ladies? Not being mean,
But they didn't look like the next guest, a dancing queen
And here came another, almost there
Almost three dozen, they were
"No more, the house is full!" shouted a man suddenly
Then no more entered, as the crowd turned bitter, sadly.
What has just happened?
