FORCE, by            
First Line: We have done good they have done evil
Last Line: That we certainly have not wholly wasted our day.
Subject(s): Strength


We have done good they have done evil
We have prevented an untried motorist
From running down a blindman.

First Point
Then extending a hand above all helpful
We crossed Perierey Boulevard
With a mother laden with nurslings.

Second Point
We have tipped our hats to all the passing funerals
We have overwhelmed with scorn and abuse
All the fops and all the other goodfornothings

Third Point
In our simple ardor we have freely bestowed
Encouragement on all the good old fellows
On laborers schoolchildren and on windows

Fourth Point
On orphans on employees of the Metropolitan
On bootblacks on professionals
Of the word on messengerboys

In a Word
Like fine old Emperor Trajan
We can verily say on this sparkling pleasant evening
That we certainly have not wholly wasted our day.
