Frank Pierce's Soliloquy

Of all the tricks that have been played of late,
 The dirtiest and worst, every man says,
Was the one I played myself, in the hope of fame
 It was helping the South to pilfer Kansas.
Pack up my duds and take my leave,
Hard work to travel back to Concord,
For all my broken pledges these sighs I heave,
It's a hard road to travel back to Concord, I believe

From Lawrence, Music for Patriots, Politicians, and Presidents
election of 1856
