|Excerpt from "O Tempora!"
These latter constitute the true
And well-marked characteristics of our times.
This rushing, tumbling life of ours,
Here on our private continent,
Bears little semblance to aught else
The world has ever seen. Men rise and fall;
One day exalted to so grand a height
And flattered with such adulation,
What wonder that they ape that state
So sweet and soothing to all human pride!
What wonder that they need a foreign staff,
And that their wives, if move they must,
Must go by special train! But still exceptions
Can be found not far from where these musings rise;
Go look at those incongruous steeds
That draw the Presidential car,
And then make pretense, if you dare,
To dread a foul usurper's sway;
These smack too much of Springfield!
Springfield! there's something in thy very name
That lulleth all suspicion; thou hast
A muddy, turgid seeming, and since thine honored son
Has made his home among us,
