Hear me friends
women or men
poor, endowed
by incident of race or creed-
as his centuries greatest sage
Auden said
til they're dead
'there is no difference between men
beyond becoming age; '
Having long agreed
I only add to these
those that cruelty kept back
by reason God-ordained,
good and bad
Need or none;
Lovely sincerity or un-
and, of course, greed.

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
