The Enlisted Man
THE ENLISTED MAN by ROBERT GRAVES
Yelled Corporal Punishment at Private Reasons: 'Rebels like you have no right to enlist--- Or to exist!' Major Considerations leered approval, Clenching his fist, And gave his fierce moustache a fiercer twist. So no appeal, even to General Conscience, Kept Private Reasons' name off the defaulter-list.
