Poetry of Kansas

Victory Loan

V stands for Victory, for Mother and Home,
I for Independence over military power;
C for Columbus who discovered our shore.
T for triumphant over our foe.
O for ocean that our ships sail upon,
R for relief for our home coming sons.
Y for the youth and to them we owe more
    favors than we can ever bestow.
L for for League of Nations signed,
O for Our Lusitania, torpedoed and mined;
A for Armistice when Teutons stacked arms
N for No, never shall we allow the Red,
    White and Blue to wave below par.
