The Cry for Justice: An Anthology of the Literature of Social Protest.  1915.

By Elizabeth Waddell

(Contemporary American writer)
THEY have taken the tomb of our Comrade Christ—
  Infidel hordes that believe not in Man;
Stable and stall for his birth sufficed,
  But his tomb is built on a kingly plan.
They have hedged him round with pomp and parade,        5
  They have buried him deep under steel and stone—
But we come leading the great Crusade
  To give our Comrade back to his own.
