A peasant and his wife were walking along the crags toward the cliffs
Then the peasant spat into the see... and said
Well I suppose in the name of God I might as well do what's to be done. Here Topsy. Good Doogie
The man let go his hold and stood up
To hell with it for a story ; I can't drown her ! You are devil of a woman to ask me to drown her !
The woman stamped her foot and shook her knitting in his face
Hey what's that you're saying ? Why don't ye go an' earn seven and sixpence then to pay for her licence ? If you hadn't drunk the price of the pig ye'd money now to pay for her
The man began to swear and walk about. The bitch crawled after him , liking his legs.
Couldn't we sell a bushel of potatoes to the schollmaster ? He was asking me other day...
Don't be silly , you fool. What are the two young pigs going to live on ? Throw her down , and don't stand there like an old woman.
The man scratched his head and spat out again
The devil a drown. I'll hide her where the police won't see her.
Yerra is it out of your mind ye are , man ? There osn't a neighbour but would be running to the police this very evening with information. Throw her down , silly , or if you are too cowardly to do it , I'll throw her down myself.
