Depression

By Robert Brush, '40

The Magpie, June 1936, v. 20, n. 2, p. 72. "Outdoor Issue."


The little red barn
Has doors all rotted
Its big red roof is dirty and spotted
There is no hay in the stalls
No farmers in bright overalls
There are no animals to cheer things up
Not even a dog with a little pup
There is no place for a tramp to rest
For the poor old farmer was dispossessed.
