OXEN OF THE SUN
"Dost envy Darby Dullman there with his Joan? A canting jay and a rheumeyed curdog is all their progeny. Pshaw, I tell thee! He is a mule, a dead gasteropod, without vim or stamina, not worth a cracked kreutzer." (U14.1419)
'Darby and Joan' is a 19c. song with Lyrics by Frederic E. Weatherly and Music by L. Molloy. An old childless couple reminisces on their life, and their fifty years of marriage.
