The people endure all, The Hydropaths cure all, The Republicans sway all, The Contractors flay all, New York it must pay all, The Despot affirms all, The Senate confirms all, Wise Dahlgren instructs all, McClellan conducts all, Some Traitor reveals all, While Seward conceals all, Baltimoreans doubt all, And then wisely scout all, The Union Men flout all, But Johnston will rout all.
'Ward Beecher defiles all, 'Winter Davis reviles all, George Dodge deceives all, While McPhail conceives all, The American receives all, Nathaniel Banks tries all, But Jeff Davis outvies all, Tommy Hicks he recants all, Beauregard enchants all. While Louis Nap crams all, Old Johnny Bull damns all, B. F. Butler will fly all, Then like Hicks deny all, Government misguides all, But the author derides all!
The Preachers will bless all, The sneaks will confess all, Victories will please all, Defeats will tease all, The taxes will squeeze all, General Wool will abuse all, General Dix will refuse all, General Jackson defies all, The Telegraph outlies all, Though Chase he will gas all, The "Green backs" won't pass all, Abe Lincoln may crave all, Jeff Davis may brave all! The Devil will have all, For nothing can save all!
Baltimore, March 7, 1862.
