"The Comparison"

The Knights of old went to the fight
Arrayed in shining armour
Reflecting back the sunshine bright
And smiled on by fair charmer
Who sent her hero on to dare
Some deed of knightly duty
In open Air and forest fair
All clothed in Verdant beauty

No shining armour can array
The warriors of "Wipers"
Unless they want to fall a prey
To lurking German Snipers
No glittering steel from head to heel
But Flanders mud attires them
Like Mice and Moles they darkly steal
Whatever war requires them.
