Extent1 item
TranscriptionRoll, up ye Vegetarians
Of Military age,
An give the Hun barbarians
A sample of your rage ;
Show that the CABBAGE and the PEAS,
The CARROT and the BEET,
Induce as much combativeness-
As Meat.

Roll, ye LENTIL lovers and
Ye BEAN devotees too,
And lend your Meatier mates a hand,
To see the matter through ;
Show that the TUNRIPS can sustain
And PARSNIPS yield resource,
And ONION eaters can maintain-
Their force.

Then when the fight is fought and won,
In your victorious hour,
Yuo may be proud of what you've done
On CHIPS and CAULIFLOWER ;
You'll praise the luck that let you live
Through War's appalling scenes ;
So haste to gith the Huns, and give-
Them BEANS!!!

CONTRIBUTIONS may be sent to The Mayor (Albert Green, Esq.), Mayor's Parlour; and gifts of fruit and vegetables to C. J. Shackleton, Hon. Secretary, Town Hall, Derby
