TRANSPOSITIONS.

LET the reformers descend from the stands where they are forever
bawling—let an idiot or insane person appear on each of
the stands;
Let judges and criminals be transposed—let the prison-keepers be
put in prison—let those that were prisoners take the keys;
Let them that distrust birth and death lead the rest.
