Excerpt from The Modern Job
The pleasant county of Montgomery, With rolling waves of hills and valleys green, Fruitful of grains and grass, and virile ores, And drifts of gleaming marble, lies serene Along the Schuylkill, in the land of Penn.
There lived Job Goodman. Good he was by name, And good by nature. In that olden day When surnames took their rise, and names meant things, Doubtless some man through whom he drew his life Had stood pre - eminent for truth and love, And was by acclamation hailed the good. And mating wisely through the generations, The good blood still retained its virgin red.
