A pair of muddy boots


  • Mud! Mud! Glorious mud!
    Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood.
    So, follow me, follow, down to the hollow,
    And there let us wallow in glorious mud.
  • I, too, saw God through mud -
    The mud that cracked on cheeks when wretches smiled.
    War brought more glory to their eyes than blood,
    And gave their laughs more glee than shakes a child.
  • Mud and rain and wretchedness and blood.
    Why should jolly soldier-boys complain?
    God made these before the roofless Flood -
    Mud and rain.
