Part Five: The Single Hound

C


WHO is it seeks my pillow nights?
With plain inspecting face,
“Did you, or did you not?” to ask,
’T is Conscience, childhood’s nurse.
  
With martial hand she strokes the hair        5
Upon my wincing head,
“All rogues shall have their part in”—
What—
        The Phosphorus of God.
