A Ballad Of Suicide Analysis



Author: poem of G.K. Chesterton Type: poem Views: 14

Sponsored Links



The gallows in my garden, people say,



Is new and neat and adequately tall;

I tie the noose on in a knowing way



As one that knots his necktie for a ball;

But just as all the neighbours—on the wall—

Are drawing a long breath to shout "Hurray!"



The strangest whim has seized me. . . . After all

I think I will not hang myself to-day.

To-morrow is the time I get my pay—



My uncle's sword is hanging in the hall—

I see a little cloud all pink and grey—



Perhaps the rector's mother will not call— I fancy that I heard from Mr. Gall

That mushrooms could be cooked another way—



I never read the works of Juvenal—

I think I will not hang myself to-day.

The world will have another washing-day;



The decadents decay; the pedants pall;

And H.G. Wells has found that children play,



And Bernard Shaw discovered that they squall,

Rationalists are growing rational—

And through thick woods one finds a stream astray



So secret that the very sky seems small—

I think I will not hang myself to-day.



ENVOI

Prince, I can hear the trumpet of Germinal,

The tumbrils toiling up the terrible way;



Even to-day your royal head may fall,

I think I will not hang myself to-day





Anonymous submission.
