Roll up your intellectual sleeves, I say!
The lacy wreaths 'round effete wrists
And plow a different mind today,
The rocky road the world insists;
A kinder, gentler, compulsory way
Enforced by more-than-tolerant fists.
When the soil has been prepared,
Sown with seeds of subtle art
Pregnated with a beauty rare
Do not neglect to take your part;
Spend the hard-won wealth of care
And glean the rich fields of the Heart.
