The Thin Red Line

The Thin Red Line we are we are
We march through field and forest
To do the biding of King George
And stop the French from conquest

We're treated well we men of war
Our duty is to follow
King and Country our fight is for
We fight for every meadow

Many a wife and girlfriend too
We left as long as needed 
To go home fight the war we do
Together soon just me and you

Many a friend has long since gone
It causes grief and sorrow
We lift up a pint till there is none
England forever more

The Thin Red Line we are we are
We fight for King and Country
Let's have a toast let's shout HURRAH!
We march to near and far

    Congrats on your win, Rick, and thanks for stopping by my blog! I only give suggestions to poems which truly SHINE. What you have is so good that I wanted MORE. I think there are another 2-3 verses in you... perhaps about the enemy, a battle- lost, then a battle- won and some mention of Louisburg or Nova Scotia, perhaps... and long after the treaty, the feeling between the French and English were antagonistic. Still, I felt my Canadian roots in this one! Way to go!

    Awesome entry for the contest! For whatever reason when I think of "pub song", I always pictured it being kinda crude, but that's definitely not the case. You've captured the time period very well... best of luck!
