And so The War were over!
It WERE over by Christmas!
So those who told us it would be!
Back in August 1914!
War were over by Christmas - 1918!
Oh what bollox - they spouted - back - THEN!
Cond us all - back in 1914!
Oh what fools we were back then!
A million dead - including the dead of The Empire!
Chipping in to the true cost and price - the lifes lost added up!
Who like us folowde the drums and fifes!
Willing to fight in the bleeding war!
As the years went - the war went on and on!
The list of those killed - published in the local papers mounted!
Less and less men and boys- lost their keeness to march off to The War!

Right up to Eleven AM, men died!
The artillery fired off - the now surplus shells!
Just how many Germans killed by 'em - I have no idea!

It Happened - and It - Happened yet again!
