THE KAISER AND GOD

' I rejoice with you in Wilhelm's first victory. How magnificently God supported him!" —Telegram from tho Kaiser to tho Crown Princess. Led by AVilhelni, us you toll, God has done extremely well; You with pntronisiug nod Show that you approve of God. Kaiser, face a questiin ne.w — This,—does God approve of you? Broken pledges, treaties torn, Your first page of war adorn: We on fouler things must look Wlk> read turther in that book, Where you did in time of war All that you in peace forswore, Where you, barbarously wise, Bade your soldiers terrorise, Where you made—the deed was fin-e — Women screen your firing line, Villager burned, down to dust. Torture, murder, bestial lust Filth too foul for printer's ink, Crimes from which the apes would shrink— Slruugo the offerings that you press On the God of Righteousness! Kaiser, when you'd decorate Suiis or friends who serve your State, Not that Iron Gross bestow, But a Cross of Wood, and so— So remind the world that you Ha*o made Calvary anew. Kaiser, when you*d kneel in prayer, "Look upon your hands, and there Let. that deep and awful stain From the blood of children slain V, m your very soul with shame. Till you dare not breathe that Namo j na.l now you glibly advertise— God as one of your allies. Impious braggart, you forget: God is cot your conscript yet; You shall learn in dumb amaze That His ways ore not your ways, That the mire through winch you trod Is not tbe hijrh white road to God, To'Whom,-whichever way the combat rolls, We, Hghting to the enu, commend our soul*. —Barry Pain, ia 'The Times.'
