Rhymes of a RoughneckI am the Cannon King, behold!

I perish on a throne of gold.

With forest far and turret high,

Renowned and rajah-rich am I.

My father was, and his before,

With wealth we owe to war on war;

But let no potentate be proud . . .

There are no pockets in a shroud.By nature I am mild and kind,

To gentleness and ruth inclined;

And though the pheasants over-run

My woods I will not touch a gun.

Yet while each monster that I forge

Thunders destruction form its gorge.

Death's whisper is, I vow, more loud . . .

There are no pockets in a shroud.My time is short, my ships at sea

Already seem like ghosts to me;

My millions mock me I am poor

As any beggar at my door.

My vast dominion I resign,

Six feet of earth to claim is mine,

Brooding with shoulders bitter-bowed . . .

There are no pockets in a shroud.Dear God, let me purge my heart,

And be of heaven's hope a part!

Flinging my fortune's foul increase

To fight for pity, love and peace.

Oh that I could with healing fare,

And pledged to poverty and prayer

Cry high above the cringing crowd:

"Ye fools! Be not Mammon cowed . . .

There are no pockets in a shroud."
