Daily Dose

From The Complete Works of W. H. Auden: Libretti and Other Dramatic Writings. 1939 - 1973, edited by Edward Mendelson


"Let's get together, folks!
Let's hear a laugh from you,
Swallow a benzedrine,
Put on your Party Smile,
Join the Gang!
To be reserved is gauche, all
Privacy anti-social;
Life's a Bang."

From Auden's Lyrics for "Man of La Mancha"
