"Next to of course god america I
love you land of the pilgrims' and so forth oh
say can you see by the dawn's early my
country 'tis of centuries come and go
and are no more what of it we should worry
in every language even deafand dumb
thy sons acclaim you glorieous name by gorry
by jingo by gee be gosh by gum
why talk of beauty what could be more beaut-
iful than these heroic happy dead
who rush like lions to the roaring slaughter
they did not stop to think they died instad
then shall the voice of liberty be mute?"
He spoke. And drank rapidly a glass of water.
