TO JOSIAH FLYNT

The Real Thing, Blowed in the Glass

    "Speakin' in general, I 'ave tried 'em all,
    The 'appy roads that take you o'er the world.
    Speakin' in general, I 'ave found them good
    For such as cannot use one bed too long,
    But must get 'ence, the same as I 'ave done,
    An' go observin' matters till they die."
                   --Sestina of the Tramp-Royal
