HOW TO MAKE A MAN OF CONSEQUENCE, by            
First Line: A brow austere, a circumspective eye
Last Line: Will deem you sure a man of consequence.


A BROW austere, a circumspective eye.
A frequent shrug of the os humeri;
A nod significant, a stately gait,
A blustering manner, and a tone of weight,
A smile sarcastic, an expressive stare:
Adopt all these, as time and place will bear;
Then rest assur'd that those of little sense
Will deem you sure a man of consequence.
