A Sing-Song

Rating: 3.2
I. THE COMMAND

To his crack army corps, 'twas the Kaiser who spoke :
By Bavarians bold must the British be broke.
'Tis the hope of my heart they may meet you but once,
To let the world see how Meinheer Atkins runs.
So fill up your cups with Bavarian beer,
Of contemptible armies the road you must clear.
Then go for the British and show me some sport
Wipe them out of existence, and send your report.'

We met, 'Twas in a crowd, And we thought they would shun us. We stormed; They would not budge, But they started to gun us. They charged, We did not wait, There was no time to potter. We thought We were hot stuff, But the Tommies were hotter. great poem great expression great 10++++++++++++++++++

The anguish of the retreating soldier from war over the imprudently imposed war amazingly portrayed. A well deserved classic poem.
