Publication is the Auction

Publication is the Auction
Of the Mind of Man
Poverty be justifying
For so foul a thing

Possibly but We would rather
From Our Garret go
White Unto the White Creator
Than invest Our Snow

Thought belong to Him who gave it
Then to Him Who bear
Its Corporeal illustration Sell
The Royal Air

In the Parcel Be the Merchant
Of the Heavenly Grace
But reduce no Human Spirit
To Disgrace of Price
