In These Days

By Elliott, Ebenezer

Description
Poetry

Excerpt
Excerpt: IN these days, every mother's son or daughter // Writes verse, which no one reads except the writer, // Although, uninked, the paper would be whiter, // And worth, per ream, a hare, when you have caught her. // Hundreds of unstaunched Shelleys daily water // Unanswering dust; a thousand Wordsworths scribble; // And twice a thousand Corn Law Rhymers dribble // Rhymed prose, unread. Hymners of fraud and slaughter, // By cant called other names, alone find buyers - // Who buy, but read not. What a loss in paper, // Groans each immortal of the host of sighers! // What profanation of the midnight taper // In expirations vile! But I write well, // And wisely print. Why don't my poems sell?...
