To the Little Fort of San Lazaro on the Ocean Front, Havana

Watch tower once for pirates

That sailed the sun-bright seas —

Red pirates, great romantics.

DRAKE

DE PLAN,

EL GRILLO

Against such as these

Years and years ago

You served quite well —

When time and ships were slow.

But now,

Against a pirate called

THE NATIONAL CITY BANK

What can you do alone?

Would it not be

Just as well you tumbled down,

Stone by helpless stone?
