POLITICS IN FAYETTE COUNTY, GEORGIA
This "poem" was found in the front cover of the old Tax Digests from Fayette County and was transcribed and sent to me by Michelle Ganus Taggart. I thought it was appropriate to include with the "political" pages. Enjoy!
Our taxes increase every year
We surely cannot pay
For we are getting in debt tis clear
And have to move away
Unless we get our Martin Van
To rule our nation right
He will do justice to every man
And keep his cause in sight.
That good old will in Henry H.
Who fought at Tippacanoe
Will beat our Van in spite of fate
In spite of all we can do.
But God will not suffer man to fall
Who lives by his hard labour
But at the judgement day he'll call
For our Whig friends to be neighbors
