Description
Poetry

Excerpt
Excerpt: The big teetotum twirls, // And epochs wax and wane // As chance subsides or swirls; // But of the loss and gain // The sum is always plain. // Read on the mighty pall, // The weed of funeral // That covers praise and blame, // The -isms and the -anities, // Magnificence and shame:- // O Vanity of Vanities! // The Fates are subtle girls! // They give us chaff for grain.
