ement andmay his daily hate be freshened occasionally by alittle German-American band playing the Alliesnational airs! HOCH! OWilhelm! Bill helm! Bloody Bill!Man of ammunition and guns! Although a monarch you may be, For general popularityYoull never accumulate buns. Vainglorious Kaiser, Although youre wiser,Youll never admit that error, grave,When you lost your head on an evil dayAnd with Uncle Samuel got too gayAs you wakened the sons of the brave! 0 champion of barbarous bawl! We hail thee as the chiefOf murderers, historical, Who lived to promote grief! Long may you live to mourn, Old Top! And in shame and sorrow bowLike the wanderer who fears to stop With Cains mark on his brow. And when tis time for the last kick-in, And you drop the blood-stained crown,The world will be rid of a load of sin (41) As your soul goes whirling downTo the place where a toasting-fork awaits For thee, with prongs red-hot,Behind those sulphur-scented gates Where the iceman cometh not! E. Tracy Sweet (42
Text Appearing After Image:
Drawn by William Steinke, The Scrantonian, Scr anion, Pennsylvania Where the iceman cometh not! LONG LIVE THE KAISER! God, at whose word all living things Grow big with being, bold with breath,Whose nod destroys the pride of kings, Withhold the Prussian King from death . .Keep back his death until that day Eternity shall swing oer earthA witness to the mute decay Of thoughts of pestilential birth. Prolong, O God, the tragic hour When Wilhelm shall be called to Thee,But strip him of his regal power — For where in him is majesty?As worms crawl on in slime, so force This Satan Exquisite to crawlWith memory of such remorse His soul shall shrivel with it all. Until each stab, each shot, each sigh Shall penetrate his leprous heart,Keep life in him; nor let him die Until he eats Griefs every part;Until the anguish he has wrought The last lone human shall forgive;Until the years dissolve the thought, Wrack him, O God, and make him live! A. Walter Utting (45) LONG LIVE THE KAISER! Long live
