Contents:
Tongue-tied
Tongue untied
The flame is spread
We are slaves!
To recover our just rights
We must fight!
'Give me liberty...'
'Don't tread on me'
Hastening to ruin
Obliged to fly
A Belgian hare
Seeds of discontent
On the wings of the tempest
A bane of sedition
Beef! beef! beef!
The sun has set in all its glory.
