Leather

Tags: war

follow the leather

 Leather

for an old soldier of the line

thick with cracks from war

just one too many battles

look around their eyes

to the young age just age

watch over a cup of tea

a packed pipe of smoke

listen to the far off rumble

as they stand up shoulder arms

whistle to the right

up lads goes the shout

follow the leather

follow me lads

over the top

save the Queen goes the shout
