Excerpt from Christmas Vs: Fourth of July 'Twas in nineteen hundred and ninety-nineA mother went with her little sonTo the children's fine old Safety Park, In the rock-bound town of Antedun. "O, mother, why were the walls built so high?"Was the boy's Pythagorean quiz."Did they dream that the babes would tumble out?Jehu! gee-hee! gee-ho and gee-whizz!" "No, no! my son, but they surely fearedThat the grown-ups would come tumbling in.'Twas the age of mad doings and dreams -Of 'Insane Fourths' and devilish din." "Insane Fourth! O, mother what did they doTo make it insane? - our nation's day -With its music and candies and creamsWhat could they do; tell me quick, I pray!" "Come here, my son, read the lesson in stoneOn the pillars and arch of the gate.Two gods stand there each side of the throneWhere 'The Innocents' frolic and wait." "Oh, mother dear! what a terrible fiendGod Moloch was; and, O, what a sightTo just see him fling his victims in;Yet he maimed them not, he killed outright. "While the god of greed - the treacherous bruteWho professes to be a good godPuts into the little outstretched handsThe deadly pistol and dynamite rod! "O, mother, how Lucifer must have smiledWhen he called them angels and elves!When he swore he never would hurt a childThen sold children things to hurt themselves!"
