The Survivor

Three soldiers in a shell hole.

He was in the middle.

The guys on either side

Took bullets and they died,

Both shot in the head.

Three mates, now two were dead.

He was in a hell hole;

Mud and blood and piddle,

But he was alive.

He knew that he’d survive.

So, he got up and ran

Then died, a nice old man.
