Journey's End (1929)

Journey's End

What will they give me, when journey's done?
Your own room to be quiet in, Son!
Who shares it with me? There is none
Shares that cool dormitory, Son!
Who turns the sheets? There is but one
And no one needs to turn it, Son!
Who lights the candle? Everyone
Sleeps without candle all night, Son!
Who calls me after sleeping? Son!
You are not called when journey's done.
