It was breakfast time, so ‘just out of bed’ makes a
satisfactory fourth line here.
Great men in their time, all male, all dead,
Look down, look serious and often frown
(Dark coated, sashed and academic gowned)

Not completely happy with ‘often frown’ but –once
again – like the little pun of lesser fry which leads on to bacon eggs and
mushrooms in the Hall
