Envoi (from "fiscal Ballads")

PROTECTIONIST! (if you exist)
Whose sympathies I can't enlist,
Be sparing of your curses!
Ah, don't abuse my Fiscal VIEWS,
But, out of pity for the Muse,
Look only at my VERSES!

FREE TRADER, too, I beg of you,
Whatever else you think or do,
My lack of skill excuse. Ah!
No doubt my VERSE could not be worse,
And weak the rhymes that I rehearse;
But, then, how sound my VIEWS are!

(Thus may I strengthen--or convert,
And no one's feelings need be hurt!)





(The end)
Harry Graham's poem: Envoi
