Carl Sandburg - Palladiums

IN the newspaper office—who are the spooks?
Who wears the mythic coat invisible?
 
Who pussyfoots from desk to desk
              with a speaking forefinger?
Who gumshoes amid the copy paper
              with a whispering thumb?
 
Speak softly—the sacred cows may hear.
Speak easy—the sacred cows must be fed.
