by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

   The earth is yours and mine,
      Our God’s bequest.
   That testament divine
      Who dare contest?

   Usurpers of the earth,
      We claim our share.
   We are of royal birth.
      Beware! beware!

   Unloose the hand of greed
      From God’s fair land,
   We claim but what we need—
      That, we demand.
