Newark, New Jersey, United States] (November 1, 1871 – June 5, 1900 / New Jersey

Once There Was A Man

Once there was a man -
Oh, so wise!
In all drink
He detected the bitter,
And in all touch
He found the sting.
At last he cried thus:
'There is nothing -
No life,
No joy,
No pain -
There is nothing save opinion,
And opinion be damned.'
