THE SNOB, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: He said not even nothing very well
Last Line: "that horrible, complacent ""keeping still""!"
Subject(s): Snobbery & Snobs


He said not even nothing very well.
After you spoke he reached, and slammed a door
Within his mind ... and ponderous silence fell.
There were few things his sneer could not ignore.

His talk was obvious and trite enough.
None missed it then, and no one ever will.
But it must puzzle God to "call his bluff"—
That horrible, complacent "keeping still"!
