Last Poems1938-1939IA bloody and a sudden end,Gunshot or a noose,
For Death who takes what man would keep,Leaves what man would lose.
He might have had my sister,My cousins by the score,
But nothing satisfied the foolBut my dear Mary Moore,
None other knows what pleasures manAt table or in bed.
What shall I do for pretty girlsNow my old bawd is dead?IIThough stiff to strike a bargain,Like an old Jew man,
Her bargain struck we laughed and talkedAnd emptied many a can;
And O! but she had stories,Though not for the priest's ear,
To keep the soul of man alive,Banish age and care,
And being old she put a skinOn everything she said.
What shall I do for pretty girlsNow my old bawd is dead?IIIThe priests have got a book that saysBut for Adam's sin
Eden's Garden would be thereAnd I there within.
No expectation fails there,No pleasing habit ends,
No man grows old, no girl grows coldBut friends walk by friends.
Who quarrels over halfpenniesThat plucks the trees for bread?
What shall I do for pretty girlsNow my old bawd is dead?
