Here's another. No idea of authenticity--I presume, it's a poem. The
rest comes from GB description.

The pageant of the New World, Stanton Arthur Coblentz
Diablo Press, 1968, p. 86
> "Workers! Bring workers!" was the General's call
> To laborers who, hands deep in pockets, stood
> Waiting, and never seemed to hear at all —
> As soon find zebras in a British wood!
