APOLOGIA FOR A MERRY ROGUE
(excerpt)

By F. W. Harvey

Rogue and drinker men call me : I am !
For abstinent virtues I care not a d—:
But from stodginess and hypocrisy,
From envy, meanness, and cruelty
May God of His grace deliver me.


F. W. Harvey is a very special poet with a unique voice.

The above lines are my particular favourites.
