When you reach the Phliffs and Glollphs, please
treat them tactfully.
Schedule lectures twice a day
on our democracy.
Instruct them in our way of life that
for almost all diseases
you are bringing to their nation.
Explain our precious culture
proven by the way we’ve grown—
until we need their acreage,
in addition to our own.
Sears Roebuck’s ready to move in,
and a dandy Five and Ten,
where they can buy at half the price,
things never seen till then.
Every little Phliff and Glollph
will someday sit in school,
and learn to measure what he does
by a strictly—golden rule.
