You leave it to Kaiser Bill.


"My army went through Belgium,

Shooting women and children down, We tore up all her country

And blew up all her towns.

Dogged if I don't believe I'm gettin' old or lazy, don't

know which; But when the violets start to bloomin' on the moun

tain, and the rich Sap o' springtime leaks out o' the old white maple 'n

trickles down the bark, 'Pears to me I want to join the robin 'n' the catbird

'n' the lark, And just fly away somewhere so's I can find a quiet

spot and rest, And worship nature, bathe in her warm sunshine and

be her honored guest.

“My Zepps dropped bombs on cities

Killing both old and young, And those the Zeppelins didn't get

Were taken out and hung.

"I started out for Paris,

With the aid of poisonous gas The Belgians, darn 'em, stopped us,

And would not let us pass.

This thing o' workin' all the time, and toilin' with no

reward 'cept money, Ain't no kind of pay; what a feller really needs is a

sniff of bees and honey, And a little freedom; get out whar you can have elbow

room and run 'n' holler, And enjoy yourself like the blue jay, and stop thinkin'

'bout the dollar That you have to work so hard for, and the grocer

bills 'n' things you have to pay; Just forget it, run away somewhere and let nature

entertain you for one day.

“My submarines are Devils,

Why, you should see them fight, They go sneaking through the sea,

And sink a ship at sight.

"I was running things to suit me,

'Till a year or so ago, When a man called Woodrow Wilson

Wrote me to go more slow.

"He said to me, 'Dear William,

We don't want to make you sore, So be sure to tell your U boats • To sink our ships no more.

That's the kind of medicine that a feller needs and

really ought to have in spring! Been shet up all winter and grindin' and a toilin' and

like new and work like blazes. -Eugene Holt Eastman, M. D., in Medical Pickwick.

“We have told you for the last time,

So, Dear Bill, it's up to you, And if you do not stop it,

You have got to fight us, too.'

“I did not listen to him,

And he's coming after me, With a million Yankee soldiers
