  TO THE TERRESTRIAL GLOBE  

Roll on, thou ball, roll on!
Through pathless realms of space
        Roll on!
What though I'm in a sorry case?
What though I cannot meet my bills?
What though I suffer toothache's ills?
What though I swallow countless pills?
    Never you mind!
        Roll on!

Roll on, thou ball, roll on!
Through seas of inky air
        Roll on!
It's true I've got no shirts to wear;
It's true my butcher's bill is due;
It's true my prospects all look blue;
But don't let that unsettle you.
    Never you mind!
        Roll on!
    (It rolls on.)

        W. S. Gilbert.
