1934 PSALM


Mr. Roosevelt is my Shepherd

I am in want

He maketh me to lie on park benches

He leadeth me beside a still factory

He disturbeth my soul

He leadeth me in the path of destruction for the party sake

Yes, though I walk in the walk through the shadow of depression

I anticipate no recovery

For he is with me

His policies and his diplomacies

They frighten me

He prepareth a reduction in my salary

And in the presence of mine enemies

He annointeth my small income with

Taxes and expenses and poverty shall

Follow me all the days of my life

And I shall dwell in a mortgaged house forever.


From the papers of George Bliss Agnew, son of New York State Legislator in Teddie Roosevelt's time.
