A Dialogue by H. Sylvester et al.

The title page of the Table Rock Album


H. Sylvester:

I have been to “Termination Rock,”
Where many have been before;
But as I can’t describe the scene,
I won’t say any more.

Anonymous

If you cannot describe the scene —
Which all should much deplore —
Inferior bards should drop their pens —
Their verse would be a bore.
