Sympathies dry


Poverty is not mother of grief.
The mother is disparity.
Prosperity cannot drive out grief.
Prosperity eliminates poverty.
With poverty elopes sympathy.
Suicides grow not from poverty
But from want of sympathy.

Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
