    The Last Parade

    With never a sound of trumpet,
    With never a flag displayed,
    The last of the old campaigners
    Lined up for the last parade.

    Weary they were and battered,
    Shoeless, and knocked about;
    From under their ragged forelocks
    Their hungry eyes looked out.

    And they watched as the old commander
    Read out to the cheering men
    The Nation's thanks, and the orders
    To carry them home again.

    And the last of the old campaigners,
    Sinewy, lean, and spare --
    He spoke for his hungry comrades:
    "Have we not done our share?

    "Starving and tired and thirsty
    We limped on the blazing plain;
    And after a long night's picket
    You saddled us up again.

    "We froze on the windswept kopjes
    When the frost lay snowy-white,
    Never a halt in the daytime,
    Never a rest at night!

    "We knew when the rifles rattled
    From the hillside bare and brown,
    And over our weary shoulders
    We felt warm blood run down,

    "As we turned for the stretching gallop,
    Crushed to the earth with weight;
    But we carried our riders through it --
    Sometimes, perhaps, too late.

    "Steel! We were steel to stand it --
    We that have lasted through,
    We that are old campaigners
    Pitiful, poor, and few.

    "Over the sea you brought us,
    Over the leagues of foam:
    Now we have served you fairly
    Will you not take us home?

    "Home to the Hunter River,
    To the flats where the lucerne grows;
    Home where the Murrumbidgee
    Runs white with the melted snows.

    "This is a small thing, surely!
    Will not you give command
    That the last of the old campaigners
    Go back to their native land?"

    They looked at the grim commander,
    But never a sign he made.
    "Dismiss!" and the old campaigners
    Moved off from their last parade. read more »

    The Geebung Polo Club

    It was somewhere up the country, in a land of rock and scrub,
    That they formed an institution called the Geebung Polo Club.

    And the horse was never saddled that the Geebungs couldn't ride; read more »
