Fight Or Pay Fight Or Pay

Fight Or Pay
October, 1915 The cause of Freedom needs our help, The Old Land's in the fray, It's up to every lion's whelp To either fight or pay. The bloody Turk and savage Hun Still ravish, burn and slay, Each loyal son must man a gun, Or stay at home and pay. Our sisters, mothers, sweethearts, wives, They nurse, and knit, and pray,...

The Canadian Army The Canadian Army

The Canadian Army
The news, "the Old Land's in it," Stirred us one August morn, Then waited not a minute The fearless British born.

Langemark Langemark

Langemark
May, 1915 The maple leaf is stained with red, Deeper than autumn's dye; On foreign fields our noble dead Their valor testify.

Blasted Hopes
We hoped to end our troubled days Far from the maddening strife, Erstwhile to chortle roundelays Of peaceful country life; But now the phone rings night and morn, The trolleys crash and bang; We hear the fearsome auto horn Where once the thrushes sang. We hoped the children that we raised, Those stalwart girls and boys; Would follow in the trail... Poems - Post by : meteora - Date : November 2011 - Author : Abner Cosens - Read : 1329

The Slacker's Son
"The teacher says at school, dad, that twenty years ago The Kaiser tried to rule, dad, and plunged the world in woe. When Britain needed men, dad, to help to fight the Huns, Boys dropped the plow and pen, dad, to go and man the guns. Each man he did his share, dad, the loyal, strong and true; I wish I had been there, dad, to fight along with you. I'm glad you met no harm, dad, and wear no wooden peg;...

Choose Ye Choose Ye

Choose Ye
In times like these, each heart decrees A law unto itself; What shall it be for you and me, Self sacrifice or pelf? Which shall we choose, to win or lose? Our all is in the game: What shall we give that Truth may live? How much in Freedom's name? A hero's heart, an honored name, Or coward's part, and shirker's shame? The...
