-- Mud --

While were fighting for the nation, in our Present situation,
Weve example in the good old common mud,
For it sticks with desperation, and makes quite a decoration
Till a soldier man looks something like a spud
When you meet an old relation, and he starts the conversation,
It's the same – unless you nip it in the bud –
For we curse the whole creation for its slimy old foundation,
Drives a man to Aviation – does the mud –
When with frantic jubilation, we shall hail the fermentation
Of the war, then e'en forgetting.
