A CHALLENGE TO WALT MASON "
AND WAR LORDS IN GENERAL
By A. C. F. Finzel.
(Part the Second.) )
King-rulers if they wish to fight
Should step from their exalted height
To strike own mortal blows!
No more in proxy slaughter, kill W
Fair flower of manhood at sweet wilL
Cease such heartrending shows!
For most mankind dear life is sweet,
Few care to be cut down by sleet
Of bullets, shells or swords!
The time has come now to replace
All force of arms ''mong every race
With arbitration s words!
No more can be considered right
For Conquest to engage in fight
Called War and legalized!
'Tis murder wholesale uncondoned,
From immemorial time bemoaned,
By all good men despised!
Waged chiefly to nphold the throne
Of Kings and Queens who'd else be
To toil like honest men!
As long as mankind will permit
Such rulers, autocrats, to sit
Ton thrones, sword rules, not pen!
Arise! all lovers of true peace,
That rulers may be forced to cease
Misrule! and t' abdicate!
Elect wise men for Presidents
In lieu of Kings 'pon which depends
Salvation -of each State!
Then solely may mankind have peace
Enduring! happiness t' increase,
Sweet life's safety t' ensure!
Prosperity, true brotherhood
And love of Justice, rights then would
Everlasting peace assure!
