Poe, Edgar Allan: A West Point Lampoon [Lines on Joe Locke]

Portre of Poe, Edgar Allan

A West Point Lampoon [Lines on Joe Locke] (English)

As for Locke, he is all in my eye,
May the d——l right soon for his soul call.
He never was known to lie –
In bed at a reveillé “roll call.”

John Locke was a notable name;
Joe Locke is a greater; in short,
The former was well known to fame,
But the latter’s well known “to report.”
