Jean Lewis Morris
A Patriot I!

A patriot I! This is my cry:
Build large each battleship!
Arm a million men! The world defy!
Let darting planes fill the sky
And lesser people feel our grip.

My country has right, by warlike might
The nations of the world
To plunge in nervous fright,
Preparing for the fight
Before war’s declaration’s hurled.

I’m a red-blooded American
Who never from battle ran,
Not a pacifist or saintly faker.

You’ve guessed me right,
I’m in every fight!…
I’m a munition maker.
