1502

PASHA

In the Dardanelles Mustafa Kemal
Explained his name, Perfection.
The explanation took eight years,
And ended with a Republic.

Of the names Cavour, Mazzini,
And Garibaldi, it is the last
That makes us smile,
In New York at any rate.

That unpleasant cipher, Geo.
Washington, is the American
Equivalent, I guess. Ever it was
Thus. Fight, win, and become

The sultan ostensibly deposed.
Cooperation without the umlaut
Ought to put you in the mind
Of barrels. Hail Ataturk!
