Poetry of Kansas

Our President

Patriotism is Americanism
By birth or otherwise;
The name of Woodrow Wilson
Brings everlasting joy;
He is a living martyr,
Equal in every way
To Washington or Jefferson
And is the Abraham Lincoln of today.
 
All Americans remember,
A few short years ago,
When we elected Mr. Wilson
As our guiding star,
Mr. Wilson heard us cheering
While trysting at the well
And with his boys sailed overseas
And gave the kaiser H-ll.

Mr. Wilson is our president,
And is a tried and true good man.
He has carried out all his plans
That congress imposed on him.
I deem it as a duty,
And will write in verse
When our history again written
The name of Woodrow Wilson first.
