Description of Prize-Day in Glasgow College

TO THE UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA

United States, your banner wears
Two emblems — one of fame;
Alas! the other that it bears
Reminds us of your shame.

Your banner's constellation types
White freedom with its stars;
But what's the meaning of the stripes?
They mean your negroes' scars.
