EUROPEAN POLITICS FOR FIRST GRADERS

In Ruhral places peace is pending
And passive resistance now is ending.

Mussolini still is Fiume-ing
And Napoleonic airs assuming.

The Prince of Wales has left incog.,
Canadian girls are all agog.

The comitadjas of Bulgaria
Enjoy their annual war malaria.

Albania will be smeared with Greece
For Italian mission’s sad decease.*

Cease balking! Cease! the league demands
But the Balkans balk at all commands.

Mark well the Ger.’s financial larks
A dollar is 50,000,000 marks.

Premiers Baldwin and Poincare
Are glad to fix le grande affaire.

— Clyde.

(*But after all, the prospect’s bright
That Corfu shall not ring tonight. –Ed.)

Middletown Daily Herald (Middletown, New York) Oct 1, 1923
