6                                     SEA SONGS.
Ask the Dons if they ever
Have fought us to win ; If they don't say, " Never,"
They lie and that's sin ; Three centuries they've tried us
With hope ? not at all; They've struck when beside us;
It's in us, that's all.
The nearest to treat us
In just our own way Was Mynheer. Did he beat us ?
Well, just perhaps one day. But, put on our mettle,
Did we flinch at all ? Mynheer, we did settle ;
It's in us, that's all.
And as for what's coming
With any that crow, If hornets are humming,
Who'll smoke them, we know j If we're driven to it,
The past just recall, And you'll see how we'll do it;
It's in us, that's all.
