Robert Kirkland Kernighan (1857–1926)

Threshed Out

I HEARD the sudden Binder roar;

I heard the Reaper shout:

God flung me on his threshing-floor—

His oxen trod me out!—

And here I lie, all bruised and brown,

Beneath the trampling feet—

The Ragweed and the Thistledown,

The Cockle and the Wheat!
