As for Locke, he is all in my eye, 
May the d—l right soon for his soul call. 
He never was known to lie — 
In bed at a reveillé roll-call.” 

John Locke was a notable name; 
Joe Locke is a greater: in short, 
The former was well known to fame, 
But the latter’s well known “to report.”


Lines on Joe Locke” is one of many poems by Edgar Allan Poe.
