Responsibilities by William Butler Yeats
The Attack on 'The Playboy of the Western World,' 1907
THE ATTACK ON 'THE PLAYBOY

OF THE WESTERN WORLD,'

1907


Once, when midnight smote the air,
Eunuchs ran through Hell and met
From thoroughfare to thoroughfare,
While that great Juan galloped by;
And like these to rail and sweat
Staring upon his sinewy thigh.
