The Somme

July 1, 2016


All charged up with Glory

They joined up as pals

The first sign of war

The noise from the shells


Those young men called Tommy

They wanted some fun

They travelled to France

To put paid to the Hun


They climbed from their Trenches

Twas nineteen sixteen

The German machine guns

A killing machine


So many went forward

Not many went back

A badly planned fight

An atrocious attack


So think of them fondly

As they’ve faded away

They gave all they had

So that you had today
