									The
 Spirit
 Woodbine Willy
 I picked this poem because it was a
very inspirational poem for soldiers the
 war. It states that that no matter the
 hard times you still need to go on. It
   bring out the “spirit” in you at bad
               moments.
  That is the reason why I chose this
                 poem.
When there ain’t no gal to kiss
          you,

And the postman seems to
miss
And the fags have skipped an
                          issue,




      Carry on.
When ye’ve got an
                empty belly,



        Carry on.
And the Bulley’s rotten smelly,


  And you’re shivering like jelly.
When the Boche has done your
            chum in,
  And the sergeant’s done the
         rum on.
      Carry in,
    And there ain’t no rations
            comin,
When the world is red and reeking,




       Carry on.
And the shrapnel shells are shrieking,



And your blood is slowly leaking,
  When the broken battered trenches,


Are like the bloody battered trenches,
          Carry on.
 And the air is thick with stenches,
     Carry on.
Though your pals are pale and wan,

And the hope of life is gone,
For to do more than you can,
Is to be a British man,
  Not a rotten ‘also ran,’


  Carry on..
