The Symbol
  The speaking at the Rotary is Praise devoid of Proof
  The talking at the Rotary turns mostly on the oof
  But both require an Emblem; and a Wheel is just the thing
  When you argue in a circle and do business in a Ring.
 
 
 
 At a Rotarian Lunch
  Broken on another wheel than Rotary
  St. Catherine's body set her spirit free
  Here rests the body that the soul may squirm
  In all joints broken to a jointless worm.
 
 
 
 A Declaration of Dependence
  The Jeffersonian justice which
  Degenerate hucksters quote
  Republicans have had by right
  Rotarians by rote
