[Editor: This poem by William Blocksidge (also known as William Baylebridge) was published in Songs o’ the South (1908).]
Paltry indeed are they who thus conspire
To pass along what-might-have-been so well:
Who plays the deputy to serve a liar
Is worse — he will not be responsible.
William Blocksidge, Songs o’ the South, London: Watts, 1908, p. 78
