Shane Leslie. 1886–
136. Fleet Street
I NEVER see the newsboys run 
  Amid the whirling street, 
  With swift untiring feet, 
To cry the latest venture done, 
But I expect one day to hear         5
  Them cry the crack of doom 
  And risings from the tomb, 
With great Archangel Michael near; 
And see them running from the Fleet 
  As messengers of God,  10
  With Heaven's tidings shod 
About their brave unwearied feet.
