APED: "fairies made gunpowder"

Fairies made gunpowder,
and they blew up half the cowslips
in the pasture by the stream, and later
burned the rosebush down.
And the leprechauns first smelted gold
into little pointed daggers
which they used to mug the big folks
in the alleys of the town.
Brownies loved their milk too much:
they drained the cattle dry;
the gnomes knocked out the bottom
of the market with their shoes.
They all learned much better,
though it took a bit of time,
and meanwhile they felt it was best
that others pay their dues.
