A Fair Division

Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce was an American editorialist, journalist, short story writer, fabulist, and satirist.






Another Irish landlord gone to grass,
Slain by the bullets of the tenant class!
Pray, good agrarians, what wrong requires
Such foul redress? Between you and the squires
All Ireland's parted with an even hand
For you have all the ire, they all the land.
