"We are none of us good enough for the world we have." Edward Abbey
"Wednesday morning, when the black bat, night, has fled, professional Republicans and Democrats - almost the only people who will care - will pronounce themselves pleased as punch by the election results."Immediately I recognized the night metaphor lifted from the poem "Come into the garden, Maud" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson.
"Come into the garden, Maud/ the black bat, night, has flown / come into the garden, Maud / I am here at the gate alone."The typist even put the commas on either side of 'night.' I had to smile. Poor George.
