THE GENERAL STRIKE A PERFECTLY FOOLISH POME
Written for The Day Book by Berton Braley.
The workers grew dissatisfied and called a mighty strike;
The butlers wouldn't buttle and the cyclists wouldn't eye,
The carpenters refused to carp, musicians wouldn't muse.
The footmen wouldn't foot at all, the newsboys wouldn't news,
The boilermakers wouldn't boil, the plumbers wouldn't plumb,
You couldn't make a copper cop, the shimmers wouldn't slum,
The chauffeurs wouldn't chauffeur, no rrfilliner would mill,
No dentist could be made to dent no matter wfiat his skill.
The hostler wouldn't hostle and the mason wouldn't mase,
The parson wouldn't parse a bit, the basso wouldn't base,
The janitors refused to. jan, the doctors wouldn't doc,
The chemists wouldn't chem at all, the stockmen wouldn't stockj
The chainmen quite refused to chain, the rodmen wouldn't rod,
You couldn't make a hatter hat or make a model mod.
The jewelers refused to jew, the cabbies would cab,
In all the world of workers there was not a single "scab,"
There was simply nothing stirring, not a job and not a chore,
But the hobo went on "boing" just exactly as before!
WHAT THEY BRING US
The American-Hawaiian steam
er Alaskan has just arrived at
San Diego with about the biggest
load of foreign products ever re
ceived there, besides a large cargo
of New York and Atlantic coast
The Alaskan's load of foreigr?
products is mighty interesting, in
view of the fact that the opening
of the Panama canal is confident
ly expected to boom trade. Here,
are the main items : 70 barrels of
Scotch liquors; 950 boxes of
wooden dishes; from Denmark;
100 cases of Italian olive oil; 200
bags of beet seed from Germany;
50 cases of wine from France; 300
cases of macaroni from Italy;
600 cases of ale and stout from
England, and 19 packages of toyi
Sounds as if we wouldn't run
short of drinks after the canal ia
opened doesn't it?.
