I believe that this poem is about a person who is reading a messege out to
the public like(george bush) did because he did not write any of his
speechs He has them written for him so i believ it is a big metaphor saying
that they are like ventriloquists told what to say.

But also it could be that the poem is about a person telling a story from
the past about how pilgrims supposedly were the founders of america and he
then realises at the end when he drinks the water that he has to take a
drink to calm down and forget about it

lastt line

in the last line, when cummings says 'he spoke. And drank rapidly a glass
of water' it could actually be him washing his mouth out from the things he
feels he perhaps should not have said

@David and all others who believe the poem is unpatriotic.
This poem by e. e. cummings is actually patriotic. he is admonishing the
people who persuade others to support war.

This analysis gives a good idea as to what e. e. cummings may be trying to
say through the poem:
