Leaves of Grass (1881-82)

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.
