A Vice Called Cant…

*

‘Use every man after his desert and who shall ‘scape whipping…’

Hamlet, Act2 Scene 2

*

Hail, eternal plodders, hail!

Stretch-out, stretch-out the tedious tale…

Ignored, that wayward Talking Cricket,

Dull, of humour not a trace…

Pedestrian, turgid, commonplace,

Without genius and without spirit.
