One would be in less danger
From the wiles of a stranger
If one’s own kin and kith
Were more fun to be with.
When I remember bygone days
I think how evening follows morn;
So many I loved were not yet dead…
So many I love were not yet born.

Never drank his medicine;
So Blackstone and Hoyle
Refused cod-liver oil;
