Song Of Sardanapalus - Poem by Hume Nisbet
'WHAT am I? a God or Man?
Man is God when great and rich —
God is man when in the ditch.
Ho, there! servers, fill each can!
'Drink! we live and so must die.
Love while we have power to love.
What care we who reigns above,
If we on the roses lie.
'Drink! and soak your hearts with wine.
Laugh, thus drive back haunting care.
While ye can think woman fair,
Ye are Gods, and all divine.'
