African American Poetry (1870-1928): A Digital Anthology

George Reginald Margetson, "The Power of the Ballot" (1908)

THAT might not the ballot do
In an age of tyranny,
In a land of villainy,
If each citizen were true!

Were mankind but half sincere
With the Good Book in his hand,
Joy might float from land to land,
Peace and plenty freely share.
