Text:
Art thou the thing I wanted?
Begone--my Tooth has grown--
Supply the minor Palate
That has not starved so long--
I tell thee while I waited
The mystery of Food
Increased till I abjured it
And dine without Like God--

Art thou the thing I wanted?
Begone--my Tooth has grown--
Affront a minor palate
Thou could'st not goad so long--

I tell thee while I waited--
The mystery of Food
Increased till I abjured it
Subsisting now like God--
