The Road That Jack Built

While in the current world it's rather hard to believe, there once was a time when America was almost "the good guys". This poem comes from that time... 'n it's a reminder of hitchhiking soldiers and the importance of the road in terms of the war.

This is the cause, democracy and right,
That enlisted the Nation in all its might,
That called our boys, staunch and true,
That need the food, munitions and stores,
That make up the load,
That travels the road
That Jack built.
From "The Highway Magazine", V9.N1, 1918
