THERE IS NOTHING TO FEAR
BUT FEAR ITSELF (FDR)
There is nothing to fear but fear itself
If you have courage, if you have faith,
then you have wealth,
said the crippled man with polio
in his fireside chats on the radio.
How do the despots come to power?
Fear lets them have their day.
How can the people sit back and cower?
Fear makes their hearts betray...
and the dictators get their way
And did you know the great Catholic pope
with his crucifix and his golden cloak
he could have stopped the death camps
with one letter with the Vatican stamp?
