Lo where the stage, the poor, degraded stage,
Holds its warped mirror to a gaping age.
Behold! in Liberty's unclouded blaze
We lift our heads, a race of other days.
Yes, social friend, I love thee well,
In learned doctors' spite;
Thy clouds all other clouds dispel,
And lap me in delight.
Through life's dark road his sordid way he wends,
An incarnation of fat dividends.
Gay, guiltless pair,
What seek ye from the fields of heaven?
Ye have no need of prayer,
Ye have no sins to be forgiven.
Quote of the day
