Text Appearing Before Image:
argantuesque!This life! A motley arabesque,Dark gipsy, acrobat, grotesque,Wealth, ruin, tragedy, burlesque—Business does well to leave the desk, Satire to drop its lash:The joyous scene stirs blood and spleen, Sets one with life in tune,From merry May makes gladsome way To br<»ht and burning June! Demockittjs {the Weeper).The Carnival of sin and shame, The Paradise of fools,Vanity Pair, at maddest game— God help the brain that cools!Wastes reckless hand, the wanton band That waits upon it, nigh:And roguery with fawning bland, And want with vulturous eye !The Race! whose rush such hopes destroys— Ruin bedecked with wings!This gorge and swill of brainless boys,Whose highest joy is wine and noise,And shying sticks at babys toys ;These lying gipsies, vile decoys,And every form low life employs, To pull fool-puppets strings!Away, away, nor longer stay, Por sorrow and for scorn:A sadder, if not wiser crowd Twill be to-morrow morn. 236 PUNCH, OR THE LONDON CHARIVARI. [June 8, 1861.
