WAR’S TOME

Whenever on foreign soil in wars far from home,
Remember this scholarly book of war tome.
Wherever in brave battle the liberty bell has rung
Wherever heroic brave heroes have war songs sung,
A world of heroes will always,
Always die young.
And old men who have lived through war’s gory hell,
Will forevermore be haunted
By death’s terrorizing knell!
