My Father’s Spoof on the Kaiser, the Emperor

leave a comment »

At the end of three pages, where my father is teaching me the old German script he has the spoof-poem:

Heil dir im Siegerkranz

Pellkartoffeln und Herringschwanz

Heil Kaiser Dir.

(Hail to you in your victory wreath

herring tail and potato peals

Hail Kaiser to you.)
