Wounded and home from the

wars, a useful right arm blown

away.

Maimed in his Country's Great Cause

back in the seat he lay.

Debarred in the future from Sports

Which he loved in the days long ago.

Still some relaxation is left- there's 

Always a picture Show.

     ____________

Here is another poor lad, not wounded

but deaf- Cannot shriek,

Had saddened a heart that was glad for

He cannot hear other folk's speak

The Temple of Thespis he does not

Attend; words now convey nothing,

and so.

He goes where he'll understand every-

thing - there's always a picture show-

[next page]

No more will he shoot clever goals when

in Winter "King Footer" Lads sway

But theres one recreation left to him

yet, and he'll go when he can, that
