Poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox


Reform


The time has come when men with hearts and brains
    Must rise and take the misdirected reins
Of government; too long left in the hands
Of aliens and of lackeys. He who stands
And sees the mighty vehicle of State
    Hauled through the mire to some ignoble fate
And makes not such bold protest as he can,
                                        Is no American.
