Present Day Robbers
I’d rather live in “Bughouse” square
Where ragged men are ranting
Than in that mansion over there
Where gardener men are planting
Those lovely shrubs and stately trees
For one who takes the money
By which he draws his selfish ease
From peons as the honey
Is taken from the thrifty bees–
The time has come to banish these.
Chicago Defender, April 20, 1940, p. 14.
