Great Men Have Been Among Us

GREAT men have been among us; hands that penn’d
And tongues that utter’d wisdom
better none than Sam Cooke, Elvis, Lennon,
Young Chatterton, and others who call’d mayhem friend.
These moralists could act and comprehend:
They knew how genuine glory was put on;
Taught us how rightfully a nation shone
In splendour: what strength was, that would not bend
But in magnanimous meekness. Syria, ’tis strange,
Hath brought forth no such souls as we had then.
Perpetual emptiness! unceasing change!
No single volume paramount, no code,
No master spirit, no determined road;
But equally a want of books and men!
