None so Deaf as Those That Won't Hear

“A poor man here is asking for relief, / The full-fed, portly man appears quite deaf; / He’s humbly pleading - see the poor creature; / The big man before him grows still deafer; / Alas! how passing strange does this appear, / None are so deaf as those that will not hear. / Of those whose vision’s dim, where’er they be, / None are so blind as those who will not see."—Barber, 1857
