THE LAST MAN: A RUFFIAN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: There's a fellow
Last Line: Like roots, with pointed nails.—he is the man.
Subject(s): Men


THERE'S a fellow
With twisting root-like hair up to his eyes,
And they are streaked with red and starting out
Under their bristling brows; his crooked tusks
Part, like a hungry wolf's, his cursing mouth;
His head is frontless, and a swinish mane
Grows o'er his shoulders:—brown and warty hands,
Like roots, with pointed nails.—He is the man.
