Museum Tales 4: War, Claudia

War, Claudia

War,

Claudia,

What is it good for?

 

Well, absolutely everything really:

the economy, science, social progress

and poetry, and then there’s engineering and

unemployment, and did I

mention, poetry?

 

So, chlorine or whisky?

A toast to the host,

nowhere to be seen

an officer, a gentleman,

what say you, old bean?

 

And down in the trenches

there’s little to do

So ve all take a Mustard

gas break, at precisely

–             10.22

Ya?
