Dutifully trying, gracefully dying,

Steeped in glory?

Once more unto the breach.

~

Smart in rank, Alert on flank,

Forward in honour?

Once more unto the breach.

~

Colours fly, battle cry,

Soon to be heroes?

Once more unto the breach.

~

Drenched in mud, drunk with blood,

Force of victory?

Slaughtered in the breach.
