'A speech to the troops' - Zachary Taylor (Year 10)

You are too young to live and die

Underneath this starry sky

And I know you’d rather be eating your mother’s pie

But you must attack thy

Enemy. And drive him from his trenches

Send him back to the backbenches

Rid him of his rocket launches

And push him onto his haunches

But sir, I hear you say

Why must we attack today

Why not save it ‘till the morrow

Save another day of sorrow

That answer I do not know

But we go where orders say we go

And tomorrow when the whistle rings

You must do your duty for country and king

You must seize the day, carpe diem

And remember you are not mice but men
