A Journalist/3

When this conscience wakes
And speaks out in thunder tones as it must

It will need facts to use as a weapon
Against injustice, barbarism and wrong

It is for this reason that I carefully compile
Print and send forth these facts

If the reader can do no more
He can pass this pamphlet on to another

Or send to the bureau addresses to those
To whom he can order copies mailed
