The General

IMG_3355_2

“Good-morning; good-morning!” the General said

When we met him last week on our way to the line.

Now the soldiers he smiles at are most of’em dead,

And we’re cursing his staff for incompetent swine.

“He’s a cheery old card”, grunted Harry to Jack

As they slogged up to Arras with rifle and pack.

But he did for them both by his plan of attack.

Siegfried Sassoon

For the many that were poorly led, I will remember you! RIP
