Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
156. Stupidity Street
 
By Ralph Hodgson
 
 
I SAW with open eyes
  Singing birds sweet
Sold in the shops
  For the people to eat,
Sold in the shops of        5
  Stupidity Street.
 
I saw in vision
  The worm in the wheat,
And in the shops nothing
  For people to eat;        10
Nothing for sale in
  Stupidity Street.
