War Chanting

The corps had a long talk
with an expressive man
He could hold their attention
with those big grandstands

He would talk of his might
and his gift for a fight
How most everyone knew
what he said was the truth

One unfortunate Thursday
he lost all his teeth
So they had to write words
for his grand outward reach

And his thoughts became slight
with his gift out of sight
All attention was lost
while his following got tossed
