She knows Cassandra’s curse, she doth indeed
Who hath seen human nature from below
As, almost always poor, always in need,
She yet with high head among others go

Doth she perceive potential somewhat less
Than rosy glow suffused it may be in? —
Straightway do others, having insight less,
To brand it “paranoia” swift begin!

Nor come they back, afterward, to observe
That things turned out exactly in that way —
Higher opinion from them she deserve,
Niggardly restitution do they pay

Ignoring evidence good time present
When she’s succeeded trouble to prevent
