URGE, by            
First Line: Some it drives to the arctic
Last Line: And die with the thing in their hearts!


Some it drives to the arctic
To mush down the frozen trail,
Where weird lights play over tundras gray
And even the strongest fail.

Some it sends to the tropics
To battle the jungle dim;
Where beasts of prey and fevers slay
And death is a specter grim.

But some are chained to stools and desks,
Playing dull, humdrum parts.
They slave and sweat and fume and fret,
And die with the thing in their hearts!
