Said Sam: "it don't sum up to sense
That honest folk should arm and arm
And claim it's just in self-defense
And none would do the other harm.
If no one's going to attack
Why should we figger fighting back?"
"but anyway, it's daft to fight,
Even for fatherland to fend;
Aye, though the cause be wrong or right
War's just plain murder in the end.
And even in his country's need
No lad should be compelled to bleed."
"And men of human conscience should
Abolish frontiers everywhere;
And in the name of Brotherhood
Of nationality beware;
I thank the Lord that I am not,"
Said Sam, "a bloody patriot."
"Just let us have a common tongue,
No barriers beneath the sun;
Freedom from fear for old and young,
Their share of joy for everyone;
A common flag of faith unfurled,
One hope, one dream, one race, ONE WORLD."
