Inscription on Back, Transcribed: A Love Sonnet - Hell is yearning for you, Kaiser Bill. The rose is red, the violet blue The skunk is sweet compared to you Way down in Hell the echos shout Come Kaiser Bill your lease is out Your fellow pal, the Turk is here And from above, without a tear The Belgians brace will fill the chutes With such as you - head, tail and boots And down your throat with pitchfork keen The Franks will poke the gasoline With shouts of joy the Imps will tell How you on Earth did spread the hell With develish mind of festering rot On maid and babe, damned be your lot.
