Mud. Blood. Mustard Gas. Firing squad, Deserters.
Shell shock. Corpses. Germans trying to hurt us.
Poppy seeds. Rank disease. The bullet, bomb and gun.
A whistle blows, the final push, face to face with Evil Hun
Death and disfigurement. Land mines. Barbed wire.
Loud bangs. Amputees. We’re coming under fire.
Medals. Widows. Orphans. A stiff upper lip.
Victory. Thanks to God. But was it really worth it?
