This is really an amazing piece of writing. “I dreamt I dwelt in marble halls, And each damp thing that creeps and crawls

Went wobble-wobble on the walls…

Strange characters of woe and fear,

The humbugs of the social sphere…

And one, a dotard grim and gray,

Who wasteth childhood’s happy day

In work more profitless than play…

~ Lewis Carroll, “The Palace of Humbug”, 1855.
