Of those Australia gazed upon with pride
Lie crippled maimed & helpless uncomplaining through it all                    
Remembering those who perished at their side.

So don't look at that picture as if Fancy gave it birth                         
There is suffering, grief & pain in every touch                                             
Sacrifice & deeds of bravery 'neath the surface lie concealed                    
Tis Holy, try to think of it as such.
