The Great War

from The Man Who Saw, an electronic edition

Veritas Victrix

THE Mill of Lies is loud,

Whose overseer, Germania's Over-lord,

Hath overmuch adored

The Over-sword,

And shall be overthrown, with the overproud.

Praised be the overwatching Heavens, that though

Falsehood her blare of brass may pitch yet higher,

Truth hath her trumpets also, and these of gold,

And she can blow

Longer than any liar,

Fronting the sun, high on her mountains old.
