  1. But I'm not so think as you drunk I am.
    ‘Ballade of Soporific Absorption’ (1931)
  2. God heard the embattled nations sing and shout
    ‘Gott strafe England!’ and ‘God save the King!’
    God this, God that, and God the other thing—
    ‘Good God!’ said God, ‘I've got my work cut out.’
     
    ‘The Dilemma’ (1916)
  3. It did not last: the Devil howling ‘Ho!
    Let Einstein be!’ restored the status quo.
