MS: 'Love and Liberty – A Cantata'

Does the train-attended carriage
Thro' the country lighter rove?
Does the sober bed of Marriage
Witness brighter scenes of love?
A fig for &c.
Life is all a variorum,
We regard not how it goes;
Let them cant about decorum,
Who have character to lose.
A fig for &c.
Here's to budgets, bags and wallets!
Here's to all our the wandering train!
Here's our ragged Brats and Callets!
One and all cry out, Amen!
A fig for those by law protected,
Liberty's a glorious feast!
Courts for Cowards were erected,
Churches built to please the Priest.

Finis. ----
