There was a bridge in the Great War

That both sides had been fighting for

So many died in that one fight

From early morn to darkest night

Tis true that they performed their best

Though in the end all failed that test.

They died there by the River Somme

As back and forth all hell did come

Of Brits alone some price to pay

Fifty-eight thousand fell that day

Now this occured lifetimes ago

And none are left who really know

But tell me please if any can

What does this say about a man ?
