GRAVEDIGGER: Love is it? Love?
There’s love enough in this half-acre to set
A generation’s poets up in stock-in-trade.
Scandals, elopements, suicides and broken hearts,
They’re all one here with usury and trickery,
Villainy and bribery, corruption and depravity.
Love won’t warm them now or keep them cool,
And that’s a truth that should be taught at school.
From Happy as Larry, by Donagh MacDonagh.
