More Truth Than Poetry
By James J. Montague.

Trotzky and Lenine.

From Azov’s frozen border
To Poland’s boundary line,
They’re bringing law and order,
Are Trotzky and Lenine.
The high ideals that fill ’em,
No turbulence can stem,
If people kick they kill ’em,
And that’s the last of them.

Well may the people heed ’em,
When fervently they cry,
“You need the brand of freedom
That only we supply.
In still enclaved dominions
The luckless subject cowers
To other men’s opinions,
But you can cringe to ours!

“You buy the goods we sell you
Without a growl or kick:
You do just what we tell you
And do it mighty quick.
And while we reign resplendent
You sh???? your ??????  fates
That you are not dependent
On haughty potentates!”

Within all Russia’s border,
There soon would be once more
A state of law and order,
Excepting for the war.
And thus the propagation
Of freedom will be spread,
Till all the population
Is either free or dead.

Syracuse Herald (Syracuse, New York) Sep 25, 1920
