The first lines of "The Mystery of the Charity of Charles Peguy":
Crack of a starting-pistol. Jean Jaures
dies in a wine-puddle. Who or what stares
through the cafe-window creped in powder-smoke?
The bill for the new farce reads Sleepers Awake.
History commands the stage wielding a toy gun,
rehearsing another scene. It has raged so before,
countless times; and will do, countless times more,
in the guise of supreme clown, dire tragedian.
