ANOTHER book! How my heart flees
From where these pinchbeck gentry are,
From their salutes and money far,
And all our phraseologies!

Another of my Pierrots gone!
Too lonely in this world was he;
Full of an elegance lunary
The soul that through his quaintness shone.

The gods depart; the fools endure.
Ah, it grows worse from day to day;
My time is up, I take my way
Toward the Inclusive Sinecure.
