Hail to the Pen
Hail To The Pen! the day is past,
When man is governed by the sword
There is a principle abroad
Greater than bayonet or the cannon's blast.
Hail To The Pen! the skillful Scribe
Wields it, a scepter, o'er the world
From thrones of darkness it has hurled
The despot, spite of threatening and bribe.
Hail To The Pen! perennial youth
And power be with the hand that wields,
Drawn from a Fount divine that yields
Impartial Justice and unbiased Truth.
Hail To The Pen! and hail to you,
Illustrious Friend, whose pen has taught
How light and truth may be inwrought,
And History writ that to all time is true.
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
