Poems of Hugh Sykes Davies

Sententiæ

If the father’s bankrupt, and the sons fail,
Blaming it on their own bad start,
Say the father should have gone to gaol,
Forgetting their grandfather’s part.

So with all centuries of blame
Fathers by their children cursed,
Say that all the trouble came
From Eve and Adam first.

[Hata Bildir]
