First Line: Quoth cupid, no more capers!
Last Line: "some people will have peace!"
Subject(s): Disarmament; Peace

Quoth Cupid, "No more capers!
Well, I have had my fling;
I see by all the papers,
Disarmament's the thing.

"The world is tired of tooting,
And tired of war's alarms;
The world gives up its shooting,
The world lays down its arms.

"The thought my spirit harrows, --
But I'm a patriot, so,
I'm going to scrap my arrows,
I'm going to junk my bow.

"And when I drop the curtain, --
When all my tactics cease, --
Of one thing I am certain,
Some people will have peace!"
