Oh, to join some group and take my card
Of membership with me
And have my clean place set at table
Respectable as can be—
I’d shout the rightness of my group,
They’d shout and say “indeed! ”
And we’d all shake hands and have a drink
To the folk of a better breed.
But I question every stock reply,
Then even of that I wonder why.
