Wilfred Owen Quotes

    The Chances

    I mind as 'ow the night afore that show
    Us five got talking, -- we was in the know,
    "Over the top to-morrer; boys, we're for it,
    First wave we are, first ruddy wave; that's tore it."
    "Ah well," says Jimmy, -- an' 'e's seen some scrappin' --
    "There ain't more nor five things as can 'appen;
    Ye get knocked out; else wounded -- bad or cushy;
    Scuppered; or nowt except yer feeling mushy."
