Youth and Age

Much did I rage when young,
Being by the World oppressed,
But now with flattering tongue
It speeds the parting guest.

Был как башибузук
В юности - злой был на мир
Теперь лжив, как политрук
Лестью гостя - в сортир

This is a poetic translation - deviations from the meaning of the original are present (extra words, extra or omitted information, substituted concepts).
