Editor's Selection of Poems
The General

by Siegfried Sassoon

'Good-morning; good-morning!' the General said   
When we met him last week on our way to the line.   
Now the soldiers he smiled at are most of 'em dead,   
And we're cursing his staff for incompetent swine.   
'He's a cheery old card,' grunted Harry to Jack  
As they slogged up to Arras with rifle and pack.

    .    .    .    .   
But he did for them both by his plan of attack.
