Edgar Lee Masters (1868–1950).  Spoon River Anthology.  1916.

68. A. D. Blood


IF you in the village think that my work was a good one, 
Who closed the saloons and stopped all playing at cards, 
And haled old Daisy Fraser before Justice Arnett, 
In many a crusade to purge the people of sin; 
Why do you let the milliner’s daughter Dora,         5
And the worthless son of Benjamin Pantier 
Nightly make my grave their unholy pillow?
