MONTAGUE JUSTIFIABLE 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! HE'LL NEED IT. Having made General Pershing chief of staff, congress should equip him with a powerful search light so-that he can find his army. THAT IS THEY'RE STILL FIGHTING Normalcy appears to prevail right along on the Turko-Grecian front. TAKING A LONG CHANCE.
