Montgomery of Allemayne
Montgomery of Allemayne did his duty
He fought for his country (and he won)
But it must be remembered -
I hope it won't be forgotten - that Monty was
Not a nice man (he wanted Africa divided up).
_________ did his duty
He fought for his country (and he died).
We don't know if ________ was a nice man
(Perhaps we'd know if he'd lived through the war).
Someone might, at the end of the 20th century,
Hope that into the 21st niceness will be considered
Something worthy for which to be remembered
Or should that be forgotten?
