Wilfrid Wilson Gibson (1878–1962)

Poems of the Great War: The Father

THAT was his sort.

It didn’t matter

What we were at

But he must chatter

Of this and that

His little son

Had said or done;

Till, as he told

The fiftieth time

Without a change

How three-year-old

Prattled a rhyme

They got the range

And cut him short.
