Huntington sleeps in a house six feet long. 
Huntington dreams of railroads he built and owned. 
Huntington dreams of ten thousand men saying: Yes, sir. 

Blithery sleeps in a house six feet long. 
Blithery dreams of rails and ties he laid. 
Blithery dreams of saying to Huntington: Yes, sir. 

Blithery, sleep in houses six feet long.
