Ellis Parker Butler (Эллис Паркер Батлер)


Would You Believe It?


One year ago I wished that I
A banker great might be
With a hundred million dollars
And financial majesty;

A mighty Wall Street banker
With a whopping lot of power
And an income of somewhere around
A thousand plunks per hour;

A solid Wall Street banker
With securities in sacks
And with clever men to show me
How to pay no income tax;

A wealthy Wall Street banker
Who raked in cash like hay;
I wished that just a year ago—
And I wish the same today.

  3. The Charge of the Second Iowa Cavalry
  4. Reasonable Interest
  5. Ridden Down
