Toy Poem from 1919

I found this poem yesterday while doing some research.  It is a toy poem from 1919 and definitely drips with patriotism.

The pennies spent on little toys

For Uncle Sam’s own girls and boys,

In turn, of course, go back again

To our own loyal working men

American – the workman’s hand

American – ’twas Built and planned,

American – in spirit too.

America’s Toy Gift to YOU.

Copyright, Toy Mfrs. of U.S.A. 1919
