OH THE IRONY! (World War One)

A conchies objector to the war sent to prison
Got talking to a fellow prisoner
He asked - '' how long you have you got? ''
'' Me ten years for murder! ''
The conchey smiled - and laughed!
'' Whats so funny mister! ''
The other prisoner demanded to know!
'' Well '' the conchey began
'' Your doing ten years for killing some one! ''
'' I'm doing ten years - for refusing to kill - any one!

Oh the irony - in that!
