The Trouble Maker

From the Evening Star, September 11, 1914. By Philander Johnson.

Nothin’ only carelessness
    Said Hezekiah Bings,
Is causin’ all the world’s distress
    An’ disconcertin’ things.
For years the fields have blossomed gay,
    For years the sun has shown.
This world would go its placid way
    If it were left alone.

But as it blossoms and it thrives
    For mortals to enjoy,
Man with his strange ambition strives
    To make the world his toy.
Through hurt and horror man will trace
    His pathway to a throne,
Yet earth would be a pleasant place
    If it were left alone.
