Wake up, Stand up

“Wake up you young and hearty, your country needs your arm.”

“We’ll teach you how to fight and kill and do another harm.”

“Stand up you young and hearty, so you can feel the pain”

“Come forth you young and hearty, and fight a war insane.”

“Wake up you young and hearty, and hear the heros call”

“Stand up you young and hearty, and watch your comrades fall”

“Wake up you young and hearty, tomorrow’s crippled souls

and let the old folk teach you to make your heart unwhole.”

About a foolhardy florilegium

Nullius addictus iurare in verba magistri, quo me cumque rapit tempestas, deferor hospes.
