Salutation by Ezra Pound

O generation of the thoroughly smug

and the thoroughly uncomfortable,

I have seen fishermen picknicking in the sun,

I have seen them with untidy families,

I have seen their smiles full of teeth

and heard ungainly laughter.

And I am happier than you are,

And they were happier than I am;

And the fish swim in the lake

and do not even own clothing.
