Once more unto the War Memorial, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our Curry Rivel dead.
After Mon 29th July there's nothing so becomes one
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of the RHS blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
As fearfully as doth a galled rock
AND GIVE CRIB A HAND...............
With apologies to Bill Shakepseare
