The Nuisance

Where's my hat? The nuisance ate it!
My books have been defenestrated,
My keys and my false teeth been hidden,
My horses stroked, and cats been ridden,
The dishes piled in tottering towers,
The guests all scalded in their showers,
The skies turned dark and filled with lightning,
Ferocious factions set to fighting,
Armies landed, the button pressed,
And Armageddon more or less
Completed by about half past nine,
Which was a most inconvenient time.
