A Ballad Of Footmen

Rating: 2.7
Now what in the name of the sun and the stars
Is the meaning of this most unholy of wars?

Do men find life so full of humour and joy
That for want of excitement they smash up the toy?

Fifteen millions of soldiers with popguns and horses
All bent upon killing, because their 'of courses'

Are not quite the same. All these men by the ears,
And nine nations of women choking with tears.
