  • Discretion

    From the Richmond Times Dispatch, June 30, 1915.

    “Oh, why should the spirit
        Of mortal be proud?”
    The male of the species
        Is never allowed
    By the once gentler sex
        To voice his belief—
    Which you’ll own well enough
        Accounts for his grief.
    No, this age deals a blow
        To man, in his pride;
    He’s wisest when meekest—
        That can’t be denied.
