Lapsus Calami (Apr 1891)/Time's Revenges

First published in the "Things One Would Rather Have Expressed Differently" section of Lapsus Calami, "Time's Revenges" was dropped from the third edition and never reinstated.

Time's Revenges

Harm to harm-doers oft recurs;
It happened, in a year or two,
That I broke hers.
