by Burns, Robert
And claught th’ unfading garland there—
 Thy sair-worn, rightful spoil.

And wear it thou! and call aloud
 This axiom undoubted—
Would thou hae Nobles’ patronage?
 First learn to live without it!

To whom hae much, more shall be given,
 Is every Great man’s faith;
But he, the helpless, needful wretch,
 Shall lose the mite he hath....Read More

...morning sheets,
Or so gentle
As to fan your brow
While you paint the kitchen.
A body like a breath,
Whispering the axiom
By which all religions are blessed:

...rowned in speculation 
At her h's and her s's, 
His p's and w's.

Though few would still subscribe
To the monogamic axiom
That strife below the hip-bones
Need not estrange the heart,
Call it a good marriage:

I blindly reeled, a hundred ways,
About the syllogistic maze,

Quoth he "That's regular clap-trap:
Don't bluster any more.
Now DO be cool and take a nap!
Such a ridiculous old chap
Was never seen before!

by Crowley, Aleister

Our Hermi had dispensed with Sinai's thunder,
But on the other hand he made no blunder;

He knew ( no doubt) that any axiom
Would furnish bricks to build some Donkeydom.

Caught the infection of his happiness.

I think that I will grow an elfin beard....Read More

...tle Bird --
Who knows but she would tell?

I think I won't -- however --
It's finer -- not to know --
If Summer were an Axiom --
What sorcery had Snow?

So keep your secret -- Father!
I would not -- if I could,
Know what the Sapphire Fellows, do,
In your new-fashioned world!...Read More
