    here is my humble attempt. parts don’t make sense, but it was the best I could do!


    At the end of the summer ‘solstice’, the iceman, whom no one should accuse of ‘artifice’ or ‘caprice’, put up a ‘notice’ at an ‘office’ in his ‘edifice’, put the effect that with ‘prejudice’ toward none he would give good ‘service’ to all, without ‘jaundice’ or ‘malice’.


    Accordingly, he supplied the politician with ‘advice’, the lawyer with ‘practice’, the doctor with ‘poultice’, the judge with ‘office’, the builder with a ‘splice’ and a ‘prentice’, the gambler and his ‘accomplice’ in their den of ‘avarice’ with ‘dice’, the bridal party with ‘rice’, the clergyman with a ‘surplice’, the cat with ‘mice’, the drinker with ‘ice’, the geologist with ‘pumice’, the woodman with a ‘coppice’, the sailor with a ‘vice’, the dentist with a ‘dentrifice’, the dressmaker with a ‘bodice’, and no one with the ‘invoice’.


    But in spite of all his efforts to supply ice to ‘entice’, some people objected so strongly to his ‘price’, that they applied to the ‘police’ for ‘justice’ regarding a ‘device’, by which they might either push him into a ‘crevice’ or over a ‘precipice’!


    I think the clerygman could make use of a chalice and a novice, as well.

    At the end of the summer solstice, the iceman, whom no one should accuse of disservice or vice, put up a notice at an office in his edifice, put the effect that with malice toward none he would give good service to all, without prejudice or injustice.
    Accordingly, he supplied the politician with advice, the lawyer with practice, the doctor with cicatrice, the judge with justice, the builder with a brattice and a cornice, the gambler and his accomplice in their den of choice with dice, the bridal party with rice, the clergyman with a cilice, the cat with mice, the drinker with chalice, the geologist with pumice, the woodman with a mortice, the sailor with a splice, the dentist with a dentifrice, the dressmaker with a bodice, and no one with the ice.
    But in spite of all his efforts to supply ice to suffice, some people objected so strongly to his choice, that they applied to the police for malpractice regarding an armistice, by which they might either push him into a crevice or over a precipice!
