“Labour’s Lost”

During the first weeks,
I must say; the quotes…flew.

With this classical education,

Seeming to clean the mud,
“We were all renewed…”

The men were warriors,

But, with not much sign of the enemy…

“Captain, put on that brew!”

“That is an order private!

The jokes…the laughter…

Then, the bombs came…
Then we knew…

Back, grew the mud…
The men were warriors…

But the quotes?

Have since become…

few.
