The Spirit of the Nation/Epigram (6)
TO THE PRESIDENT
OF THE ORANGE OPERATIVE SOCIETY, ON HIS PROJECTED PEDESTRIAN CRUSADE.
What! talk of crusading through England "on foot,"
With your budget of slanders as black as my boot!
That humbug at least—for you know, Trashy Gregg,
That Father Maguire hasn't left you a leg
To stand on!
