  PESSIMISM  

In the age that was golden, the halcyon time,
    All the billows were balmy and breezes were bland.
Then the poet was never hard up for a rhyme,
Then the milk and the honey flew free and were prime,
    And the voice of the turtle was heard in the land.

In the times that are guilty the winds are perverse,
    Blowing fair for the sharper and foul for the dupe.
Now the poet's condition could scarcely be worse,
Now the milk and the honey are strained through the purse,
    And the voice of the turtle is dead in the soup.

                                                                            Newton Mackintosh.
