THE COLONEL'S IN TOWN
CHALLENGE TO WAR-LORDS
By A. C. F. Finzel.
(Part the Third.)
Might of brute force, not right divine
Alas, made kings and queens to shine
Thruout world's history!
By priestcraft far too oft endorsed,
By sweet (?) revenge too re-enforced,
Thus progress of mankind was slow
Till reason of bright men could show
The folly of bruteforce!
Until the pen replace the sword
For good and all time each war
lord Can but bring deep remorse!
For sanguinary war and strife
Can but embitter human life
To wish one self unborn!
The golden not the cold steel rule
May surely save from grave mis-rule
Of Kings all time outworn!
Let's have all other kinds of kings!
Of music, art! who sweeten things, '
And prove e'er true godsend!
Inventors, scientists, artists, great
Who toil, oft cope with' unkind fate,
True kings all good do blend!
Arise! rebel 'gainst kings and queens
And nobles (?) who toil not for
Of livelihood but waste!
Away with autocratic power
Resorting to shot, shell, to shower
Ton precious lives with haste!
Of small use culture, education
If it not save from devastation
By criminal nobles, (?) kings?
True culture's object: th elevation
Of all mankind not degradation
Culfvite best in all things!
KEEP OFF THE GRASS!
