England's Broken Doll

A. E. Andrews
Language: English

A lady came to me a year ago
She said that I should very much like to know
Why aren't you in Khaki or Navy Blue
Why don't you serve your Country, as your Country serves you?

I looked at her quite startled, then replied
Don't think that I'm a shirker after all
I think I've had my chance
For my right arm's in France, I'm one of England's "Broken Dolls."
