The Charge of the Loltractors


Half a league, half a league,
  Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
  Rode the Loltractors.
'Forward, the Loltractors! :Smile-izmena:
Charge for the arty he said:
Into the valley of Death
  Rode the Loltractors.


Forward, the Loltractors!'
Was there a man dismayed?
Not though' the Loltractors knew
  Someone had blundered:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die: :unsure:
Into the valley of Death
  Rode the Loltractors.

Meds the right of them,
Heavies to the left of them,
Arty in front of them
  Volleyed and thundered;
Stormed at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell
  Rode the Loltractors.

Flashed all their flak guns there bare,
Flashed as they turned in air
Put putting the arty there,
Charging an army while
  All the world wondered:
Plunged in the arty -smoke
Right through' the line they broke;
American and Russian
Reeled from the cannon stroke
Shattered and sundered.
Then they rode back, but not
Not the Loltractors.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon behind them
  Volleyed and thundered;
Stormed at with shot and shell,
While lemming and hero fell,
They that had fought so well
Came through' the jaws of Death,
Back from the mouth of Hell,
All that was left of them,
  Left of Loltractors. :Smile_harp:

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
  All the world wondered.
Honour the charge they made!
Honour the Loltractors,
  Noble Loltractors!

With apologies to Alfred, Lord Tennyson
