𝗜𝘁’𝘀 𝗚𝗼𝗱’𝘀 𝗧𝗿𝘂𝘁𝗵
I went unto the playing fields to check upon our youth.
I went and saw the conquered and I uttered quietly: “Struth!”
I searched in vain for brave young men; I searched but few could see.
I watched the heroes of each sport go down upon one knee.
I listened to the commentariat, their words so barmy.
I came back home and wrote this down: “We couldn’t raise an army”.
