Outlook Odes (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Outlook Odes My Dear Sir, -You may think it unkind of meTo interrupt the peaceful calm of your holidayWith a poem about business.But I assure you, my dear sir, That I do so with the very best intentions, And at the call of what I consider to be duty.Duty, as you know, is a tremendous abstraction, And brings a man into all sorts of difficult corners.It was duty that took you into Parliament: Similarly it is duty that constrains me to Odes.When a man sees another man and pities him, It is the duty of the first man to let the other man know about itDelicately.I pity you, my dear Mr. Private Member, From the bottom of a bottomless heart.Many a time and oft in the course of my ramblesThrough the lobbies and liquor bars of St. StephensIt has been my ineffable portion to run across you -Silk hat, frock coat, baggy trousers, patient stare, bored expression: Suddenly you smileAnd crook the pregnant hinges of the back of your neck.
