From The Topeka State Journal, June 3, 1915. By Roy K. Moulton.
Quite soon the world must hesitate
And listen to the graduate
And soak in good advice
That’s given by the wise young men
And women o’er and o’er again
Without the slightest price.
They’ve got a lot of it to give.
They’ll tell the whole world how to live
And how to win the strife.
They’ll tell the old folk as of yore,
In fancy and high-sounding lore
How to succeed in life.
It’s safe to say they will solve all
Of Wilson’s problems, great and small,
And questions of the day.
The world, of course, will be polite
And listen on commencement night
And then go on its way.
