Página 73 - God said, I am tired of kings, I suffer them no more; Up to my ear the morning brings The outrage of the poor. Think ye I made this ball A field of havoc and war, Where tyrants great and tyrants small Might harry the weak and poor?
Página 650 - It is unjust and dishonorable and there is no necessity for it ! ' Then the handful will shout louder. A few fair men on the other side will argue and reason against the war with speech and pen and at first will have a hearing and be applauded, but it will not last long ; those others will outshout them, and presently the anti-war audiences will thin out and lose popularity.
