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?
