Sez You

When the heavy sand is yielding backward from your blistered feet,
And across the distant timber you can SEE the flowing heat;
When your head is hot and aching, and the shadeless plain is wide,

What's The Pope Do?

What's the pope do? Drinks, and takes a nap;

fiddles with the housemaid's garter strap,

The Hero Of Rorke's Drift

When instantly two men on horseback drew rein beside him.

The Cut-down Trousers
