Let go of that bridle,
D'you hear what I say?
I must get to market,
Don't argue all day.

"Old Glory's dishonored?

We back down on our word? Brave men may despise us,"

Is that what you've heard?

What's that about "pottage,
And selling our souls,
And birthright"?-and "brothers
At opposite poles"?

Now the summer weaves their pall.

But we mourn, who may not share In the glory of their dying,

-Oh, how sorrowful!- How fair, - Pain is fled

August, 1915

They, the Deathless!

But he only shot a pigeon dead, dead, dead.

While a Chancellor, far-famed,

"It is treachery," exclaimed,

"To try to destroy a Zeppelin," lin, lin.
