The USS Maine's Bathtub-- Part 2: A Poem, Sort Of

From Roadside America

100 Years of Democracy and Cleanliness
1898 Bathtub from the Battleship Maine
Rude Treachery As the Captain Scrubbed
A Sudsy Vessel, Blown Asunder
Cradled in God's Hand, A Gift To Faithful Findlay
Your Pluck Is Our Pride, Brave Citizens of Ohio
Our Flag Will Yet Wave O'er the Cuban Lagoon
Mothers Hoist Your Washcloths High
For Here Stands Liberty, Enameled
