His mother and brother said 'Johnny ... Don't go'!
The Bar girls of 'Vunger's' said ... 'Yu Baby San! No'!
Then dripping black darkness, his mates standing by;
There was a dying. In silence ... the eye's asking why?
Just nineteen short summers ... or ... perhaps a little more,
But what's to be said, it was ... Uh, not a real war;
Sweet Johnny sleep ... it is best you don't know.
Happy was the land ... that needed no heroes.
