The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, Annual Extravaganva July 1923

A More Humane Chief Justice

page break

A More Humane Chief Justice.

A more humane Chief Justice never
Did sit upon the Bench.
To prisoners sentence,
Till time of repentance
Quite gives his heart a wrench;
It is his very humane endeavour
All crime and vice to cure;
Of drinking and smoking
Those vices provoking
He'd have us all quite pure.

For For he's Spout, K.C.M.G.,
C.J. and LL.D.
The Bench's pride and its ornament,
Its pride and its ornament.
The' he don't like student ways,
Especially on Capping Days,
We hope some day he'll repent, relent,
We hope he'll repent, relent.
(Chorus repeat)
