A MASQUE

Posted by Admin on Saturday, 23rd February 2008, 00:00

From lucubration’s futile toil,
o’er countless quires of foolscap ruled,
no prestige came that I might coil
green laurels where an ice-pack cooled
a brow well-moulded for display
amid those celebrated men,
around whose work the limelight’s ray
would dry an adverse critic’s pen.
But, now, as Shaw so wisely penned,
a Man of Destiny would gain
the fame aggression’s triumphs lend,
I, too, publicity may claim;
in daily interest I bask;
a citizen complete with mask.
