Ezra on the Strike

by
 Wal, Thanksgivin' do be comin' round.
With the price of turkeys on the bound, And coal, by gum! Thet were just found, Is surely gettin' cheaper.
The winds will soon begin to howl, And winter, in its yearly growl, Across the medders begin to prowl, And Jack Frost gettin' deeper.
By shucks! It seems to me, That you I orter be Thankful, that our Ted could see A way to operate it.
I sez to Mandy, sure, sez I, I'll bet thet air patch o' rye Thet he'll squash 'em by-and-by, And he did, by cricket! No use talkin', he's the man - One of the best thet ever ran, Fer didn't I turn Republican One o' the fust? I 'lowed as how he'd beat the rest, But old Si Perkins, he hemmed and guessed, And sed as how it wuzn't best To meddle with the trust.
