[144] no means “a joy forever,” when it undertakes to do the dirty work of a very dirty rebellion.

When lovely woman stoops to folly,
     And strives her country to betray,
It is not a proceeding jolly,
     However Southern rebels pay.

Because, if lovely woman's taken
     In such a base and shameful sin,
Her chance is slim to save her bacon,
     And very slim to get her tin.

--Boston Sat. Evening Express, June 29.
