  The  doorkeeper  looked  with  a  comical  twist 
  Of  the  face,  at  the  eminent  egotist, 
  And  said:  "Go  away  for  we  settle  here 
  All  manner  of  questions,  knotty  and  queer, 
  And  we  cannot  have  when  the  speaker  demands 
  To  be  told  how  every  member  stands, 
  A  man  who  to  all  things  under  the  sky 
  Assents  by  eternally  voting  'I'."
