The Spur

Poem By William Butler Yeats

YOU think it horrible that lust and rage
Should dance attention upon my old age;
They were not such a plague when I was young;
What else have I to spur me into song?

You might try to at least quote the poem accurately; it's dance attendance not dance attention. The computer-generated reading is an abomination.
