There's a rumour now current tho strange it

                  may seem,

Of the German Emperor's wonderful dream

Being tired of war he lay down in bed,

And 'mongst other things dreamed that he

             had gone dead

And in a deep coffin lying in state

With his cold, waxen features frozen with hate

He wasn't long dead when he found to his cost

That his map of the next world and passports

                were lost

So, leaving this earth, to Heaven he went straight

Jauntily strutting right up to the gate

But the look-out angel in a voice strong and clear

Said " Begone, Kaiser W. we don't want you here."

"Well' thought Wilhelm" that's very uncivil;

Does he mean I must go straight way to the Devil"

So he turned on his heels and off he did go

Running full speed to the regions below;

But when he got there he was filled with

               dismay

For whilst waiting outside he heard Old Nick sat

To his imps"Now look here boys I give you

               all warning.

I'm expecting the Kaiser down here this morning

But don't let him in , for to me it is clear

We're far too good for the mongrel down here

[next page]

If he gets in there'll be the dickens to play

For as had as I am he's worse any day."

"Oh , Satan, dear friend" the Emperor cried,

"Excuse me for listening whilst waiting outside;

If you don't let me in where can I go,"

"Indeed " said the Devil " I really  don't know,"

"Oh do let me in , I'm feeling quite cold

If money you want I've plenty of gold;

Just give me a chance no matter how hot"

"No" said the Devil " most certainly not!

We don't let apartments for riches or pelf;

Here's some sulphur and matches, make a hell

             for yourself."

The he kicked Wilhelm's hind part and

               vanished in smoke.

And just at that moment the Kaiser awoke

He jumped out of bed in a shivering sweat

And said "Gosh! that dream I shall never forget.

That I won't go to Heaven I know very well

But it's awful hard lines to be kicked out of Hell."

                                       Agnes Hewitt

"We may love without poetry, music and art

We may live without conscience and live without heart;

We may live without friends; we may live without books,

But civilized man cannot live without cooks."
