First Line: I would to heaven that I were so much clay
Last Line: And so -- for god's sake -- hock and soda-water!
Alternate Author Name(s): Byron, Lord; Byron, 6th Baron
Subject(s): Don Juan


I would to heaven that I were so much clay,
As I am blood, bone, marrow, passion, feeling --
Because at least the past were pass'd away --
And for the future -- (but I write this reeling,
Having got drunk exceedingly to-day,
So that I seem to stand upon the ceilling)
I say -- the future is a serious mater --
And so -- for God's sake -- hock and soda-water!
