AUTHORITY.

By Samuel Butler.

 

Authority intoxicates,

And makes mere sots of magistrates;

The fumes of it invade the brain,

And make men giddy, proud and vain:

By this the fool commands the wise, 

The noble with the base complies,

The sot assumes the rule of wit,

And cowards make the brave submit.
