I vow I'll live and THEN
I put my elbows on my desk
AND PUSH A PUNY PEN!

The single-panel poetic "Militant Mary" seems to have been syndicated in newspapers through the 1910s and 1920s. Some are signed Steve Hyde, though the art and lettering looks the same in most.
Some online collections:
"I always look at wealthy men with awe and never FAIL
"To wonder how they made their pile AND YET KEPT OUT OF JAIL!"
