Emily Dickinson

Success is counted sweetest

By those who ne’er succeed.

To comprehend a nectar

4 Requires sorest need.

Not one of all the purple host

Who took the flag today

Can tell the definition

8 So clear of victory.

As he, defeated, dying,

On whose forbidden ear

The distant strains of triumph

12 Break, agonized and clear.

"Plain Bob and a Job" by James W. Foley

Bob went lookin’ for a job—

Didn’t want a situation; didn’t ask a lofty station:

Didn’t have a special mission for a topnotcher’s position;

Didn’t have such fine credentials—but he had the real essentials—

5 Had a head that kept on workin’ and two hands that were not shirkin’;

Wasn’t either shirk or snob;

Wasn’t Mister—just plain Bob,

Who was lookin’ for a job.

Bob went lookin’ for a job;

10 And he wasn’t scared or daunted when he saw a sign—"Men Wanted,"

Walked right in with manner fittin’ up to where the Boss was sittin’,

And he said: "My name is Bob, and I’m lookin’ for a job;

And if you’re the Boss that hires ‘em, starts ‘em working and that fires ‘em,

Put my name right down here, Neighbor, as a candidate for labor;

15 For my name is just plain ‘Bob,

And my pulses sort o’ throb

For that thing they call a job."

Bob kept askin’ for a job,

And the Boss, he says: "What kind?" And Bob answered: "Never mind;

20 For I am not a bit partic’ler and I never was a stickler

For proprieties in workin’—if you got some labor lurkin’

Anywhere around about kindly go and trot it out.

It’s, a job I want, you see—

Any kind that there may be

25 Will be good enough for me."
