“This field of corn has been neglected long, / The weeds are rank, quite high, and rooted strong; / These lazy men, beneath a broiling sun, / Have scarcely yet their toilsome work begun; / By ‘putting off’ the time, hard work they make, / Their toil is doubled, and more work they make."—Barber, 1857
