Could old William Tell, hero of
a thousand tales, take aim at this apple-for-the-teacher
and split it half in two? The shattered Grecian
column holds it up and not a child's innocent
head, but still if he were to miss his aim he
might yet have a second bolt to put through the
heart of a convenient tyrant. There's no shortage
of petty men who will sacrifice their children's
birthright for a mess of pottage, then or ever.
Come Sweet William, and together let us refresh
the Tree of Liberty.
