  LINES WRITTEN AFTER A BATTLE  

Stiff are the warrior's muscles,
    Congeal'd, alas! his chyle;
No more in hostile tussles
    Will he excite his bile.
Dry is the epidermis,
    A vein no longer bleeds--
And the communis vermis
    Upon the warrior feeds.

Compress'd, alas! the thorax,
    That throbbed with joy or pain;
Not e'en a dose of borax
    Could make it throb again.
Dried up the warrior's throat is,
    All shatter'd too, his head:
Still is the epiglottis--
    The warrior is dead.

                             Unknown.
