This mud + slime

Though we get sore in it

Grumble + roar in it

We'll win the war in it

In our good time!

John  J   Curten . Sgt.  Inf.

 Wavy line drawn underneath. 


"Dad's Letters"


My dad ain't just the letter writin' kind -

He's rather let the women see to that;

He's got a mess o' troubles on his mind,

And likes to keep 'em underneath his hat.


And p'raps because he isn't very strong

On  talking', why he's kind o' weak on ink

But he  can/cant  work like in the whole year long

And, crickey, now that dad o' mine can think.


When I set out from Oldham last July

He didn't bawl the way my old friend did.

He just shook hands + says "Girlie good-bye"

(He's got his feelin's, but he keeps 'em hid)
