Impotent as distant thunder,
In whose shadow I have eaten my ghost ration.

Sturdy stoppers keep from thee
Cologne distillations;
Nuts lie in thy path for stones,
And thy feast-day macaroons
Turn to daily rations!

A rent of praise, a loud and lofty song,
From every rational beholder's tongue.
"The Believer's Principles : Chap. I." by Ralph Erskine
A ration of rum and a biscuit was served out to each man,

And a Day on our Selection passes by me in a flash.
