Grant Poetry: 1880



NEWS SHIP.

A Ship It is a Sailing, Sailing, O'er
the Sea, and It is Deeply
Laden With Items
All for Thee.

News of Battles In the Cabin1, and of
Injuns In the Hold2, the Sales
were 'lection Marshals3
the Masts were Sher-
man's Gold4.

Forty Thousand Sailors Flocking
to the Show, Forty Thou-
sand Stalwarts all
for Chicago.5

The Captain was a Gen'ral, the
Convention in His Pant, and
Every Time He Said
"Thumbs up" the Del-
egates Said

Grant.

(The Argus, 2 June 1880.)
