Move and Carve Out your Own Space

(Let the hedge take up too much space
And the garden is spoiled.)

There’s a lot of space behind
But not for you.

Turn your back on the crowd
And lead.

Tall like the haze gone wild
They may be
They’re but perishing people
Without vision.
So turn your back on the crowd
And lead.
Save them.

Conduct yourself to the front
And make yourself comfy,
Chair by chair
Will make a hundred
Adorn the place
You left behind.
You can make the front
Meet the end
When you turn round
O’ you can make
The poles meet
When you turn round-

You are vis-à-vis your audience.

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
