I WONDER 1
By Berton Braley.
They say thaMf we made each trust
Obey the law as mortals must
We'd have the country going bust!
That if we'd stop 'em in their might
From grabbing everything in sight
Weft have, to' bid ourselves Good
night! They say we'd simply go to thunder,
And yet I wonder 1
They say that, should the people rule,
They'd ruin church and state and
And everybody'd play the fool;
That referendum and recall
And other changes, large and small,
Would raise the dickens with us all;
They say we'd make of life a blunder,
And yet I wonder!
They say that should a woman vote
She'd wear the trousers and the coat
And cease on little ones to dote;
They say she'd lose her gentle charm,
Grow gruff of voice' and strong of
And fill the country with alarm;
They say she'd break the home
And yet I wonder!
Whenever something new is started
The doubters, faint and chicken
hearted, Declare the world has gone to thun
der, And yet I wonder! . 5i ,
