Curling their shameless toilets round the hour.
Each lay upon his lips an exquisite flower

For he had said long ere he came to earth
That it was no place for a gentleman.

And somehow he missed the ultimate degrees.
He saw a beggar at the daylight's fall
And then he rose and robbed him for the scene;
And when they called him cad he found release--
He felt he had used the finest snub of all.
