The Author William Butler Yeats

The Great Day


Hurrah for revolution and more cannon-shot!
A beggar upon horseback lashes a beggar on foot.
Hurrah for revolution and cannon come again!
The beggars have changed places, but the lash goes on.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
