'An Old Person of Newry'

'An Old Person of Newry', an illustration by JVL in The Nonsense Verse of Edward Lear, 
Jonathan Cape 1984, and reissued in 2012.

There was an Old Person of Newry
Whose manners were tinctured with fury;
He tore all the rugs, and broke all the jugs
Within twenty miles' distance of Newry.
Edward Lear
