As queen and as goddess we long to protect you,
And how can we give you a pleasanter day
Than by keeping your dear little children away?


O, come all ye factory owners, combine;
Protecting the home is your own special line,
Since childhood is boist'rous, we firmly decline
To permit it to trouble the fireside shrine.

[ 22 ]
