Speling left as they wer writ.


Them war poets of world war one
Proper poets , educated right proper
Publike scholls , gramer school and all

The Tommy Atkins , bear litarit and all
Hardly able to string aline leters let alone words
Most best left unread , whod understan 'em anyway

Kids from Lillan* Road school , fare ennoth they could write
Theire names , write thire names , wot more did they need to do?
Nofing's thats fore there betters affter all
To write poerty , not for the likes of Tommy Atkins
He should no his place in the sceme of things!

Those with a simuler right proper edicastian are the right pepole
To compose poetry , to recall World War one , only right and proper after all!
Old Tommy Atkins , wot dos he know , nofink at all , that wot he knows!
Dont no shit , about any fing!

* Has Hereson School was called back in 1914
