Song of Europe

Sing a song of Europe, highly civilized,
Four and twenty nations wholly hypnotised,
When the battle opens the bullets start to sing –isn’t it a silly way to act for any King?

The Kings are in the background, issuing commands,
The Queens are in the parlours, per etiquette’s demand;
The bankers in the country house are busy multiplying
The common people at the front doing all the dying.
