    "A big black bird screamed Roto-Rooter"
    and away go troubles down the drain.




    The "Raving".... read and take heed.

    Once upon a midnight dreary,
    while I pondered weak and weary,
    Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore.

    While I nodded in the hushing,
    suddenly there came a rushing,
    as of someone slowly flushing water 'cross my chamber floor.
    Only this and nothing more.

    Eagerly I wished the morrow,
    vainly I sought to borrow plungers to relieve my sorrow,
    mops to dry the soggy floor.
    I slowed it down and nothing more.

    Ankle deep in water standing,
    long I stood there wheezing, panting, weeping, cursing curses no mortal ever
    cursed before.
    As the mess was slow subsiding,
    my thoughts were strong to go a riding to dry my troubled clothes,
    perhaps to find a liquor store.

    I jumped astride my motor scooter,
    a big black bird screamed "Roto-Rooter"!
    "And away go troubles down the drain" - Roto-Rooter.
    Quoth the raven: "Evermore."
