How to run the war

Weve heard a fair amount of noise,
On how to run the war
Without undue extravance [extravagance?],
But here's a little more,
A lot of things you issue us
In many ways are good,
But even yet economy
Is little understood

Our biscuits, now, for mending roads
(Where metal reigns supreme)
Or armour plating round the tanks-
They'd make a bonzer scheme
Or soaked for weeks in kerosene
They might be used for fuel
And save some hero from the cold
When winter time is cruel.
