(News note: “In all Bavaria Chancellor Hitler received the largest vote in his favor in the concentration camp at Dachau.”â€”N. Y. Times, August 20, 1934.)
Let congressman and president
Abandon tactics truculent
And emulate the brotherly,
When hit, I’ll turn the otherly
Cheekâ€”of across the sea.
Because so loud the country calls,
Secure the loudest behind walls;
Take office ere encountering the glad electorate.
Then each Republican in haste
Acquires a Democratic taste.
For getting out a record vote, there’s nothing like a camp!
Because you’ll be the singular and only candidate.
And should there be a backward mite
Who hasnt’ learned to plebiscite,
In Sing Sing’s bracing woodland air, he’ll his approval stamp.
He’ll ja with all the camp-fire boys
When concentration he enjoys.
