By GEO. G. REEVE.
“The Strong must ever rule the Weak is grim Primordial Law—
On earth’s broad racial threshing floor, the meek are beaten straw;
If you are fit you’ll rule and reign is the Logic of To-day.”
“In this book and wilderness of Steel and Stone I raised up my voice that you may hear.
“To the East and West I beckon, to the North and South I show a sign,
“Proclaiming Death to the Weakling, Wealth to the Strong.”
A literary reincarnation of Wodin.
“I break away from all conventions. Alone, untrammelled, I raise up my voice in stern invasion.
“The Standard of the Strong. No hoary falsehood shall be a truth to me. No cult, no dogma shall encramp my pen.
“Man is under no obligation to obey anything or anybody.”
Ross’s Monthly, 17 April, 1920
