The Author’s Boomerang
by [?]


HE frowns with reason; he has always said,
“The public has no knowledge of true art;
The book of worth these days would not be read;
‘Tis trash not truth that goes upon the mart.”

And then was published his belovéd work-
Some twenty-six editions it has had-
And he his own conclusion cannot shirk:
With such success as this it must be bad!
