i There Ate Around Us Many
men and women moving about in their
homes and elsewhere
who are half asieep
They have education, fairly good health,
fine opportunities, but they never sufficiently
awaken to see where they are going and
What they are doing or to have themselves
under proper control.
They simply drift with the currents and
let their lives be drained away under
invisible secret influences.
The pity of it and the sorrow of it,
farther on, but certain!
Even in a big,v healthful business place
like ours this sleeping sickness exists.
