More Truth Than Poetry
We hold that murder is a ctime
With very few redeeming features;
Yet now and then there comes a time
When one must kill one's fellow creatures.
But if a butchery we've planned
(Compelled thereto by circumstances )
The rules of sportsmanship demand
y,'c grant our victims even chances
For any one to go and fight
A gun, a rattlesnake, a wombat
A bear or tiger isn't right
Without sonic show of equal combat.
And yet with flies, these rules we waive;
When on the baby's nose we spot 'em
We have no thought or duty save
To pick the paper up and swat 'cm.
And even in the early spring
When one may easily decoy 'em,
And smite 'em hip and thigh and wing
One has no choice but to destroy 'cm.
To cut their hours of evil short
When they are drowsy and unwary.
May not, wc freely own, be sport
But just the same it's necessary.
For tbey are savage and unclean
They carry every known bacillus
Upon their feet, with which they mean
As soon as chance permits, to kill us.
They fight us on their own foul terms
E'en though we never have incensed 'cm.
They hunt us down with deadly germs
And we have no defense against 'em.
So crush 'cm when they're comatose,
Fil up their turns with poisoned water.
It may be murder, goodness knows,
But you should glory in the slaughter!
Having made General Pershing chief of staff, congress should equip
him with a powerful search light so-that he can find his army.
Normalcy appears to prevail right along on the Turko-Grecian front.
The first thing France knows she will be put out of the league of
nations for sassing the umpire.
