Upton Sinclair, ed. (1878–1968).
The Cry for Justice: An Anthology of the Literature of Social Protest.  1915.
 
The Last Word

By Matthew Arnold

(English essayist and poet, 1822–1888)
 
THEY out-talk’d thee, hiss’d thee, tore thee.
Better men fared thus before thee;
Fired their ringing shot and pass’d,
Hotly charged—and broke at last.
 
Charge once more, then, and be dumb!        5
Let the victors, when they come,
When the forts of folly fall,
Find thy body by the wall.
