April 16

Poetry and Fiction

 

294.

It’s Tommy this, and Tommy that,

And chuck him out the brute,

But it’s “Savior of his Country,”

When the guns begin to shoot.

~Rudyard Kipling

 

295.

For God and the soldier we adore,

In time of danger, not before.

The danger passed, and all things righted,

God is forgotten and the soldier slighted.

~Rudyard Kipling
