Excerpt from Brennus, or the Downfall of Tyranny; A Tragedy, in Five Acts, And, Alcander, or Love and Friendship; A Drama, in Five Acts
The times are changed. Oh, I have known the day When the term poverty would startle me, So rarely did the word confront my ear; But the lean... haggard forms and altered looks Of far the greater portion of our sons Custom has made familiar and unheeded. We need a cure - a balsam must be had, To heal the bleeding gashes of the land. 2d Citizen. What would you have us do? Celene. Be men, be men! And the proud arm of tyranny will wither. Citizens. We are, we will! Rufus. But there be many ways of being men. A true and faithful band, a chosen band.
