CHARGE OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE
Half a league, half a league.
Half a league onward,
All down the fire escapes
Ran the six hundred.
“Forward the Light Brigade!
Cdiarge for the cafe they said.
Down the cement steps
Ran the six hundred.
“Forward the Light Brigade”
Was there a one dismayed?
Not tho’ the pupil knew
Someone had blundered:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to eat and die
Upon the cafeteria steps.
Swarmed the six hundred.
Teacher to right of them,
Teacher to left of them,
Teacher in front of them
Stormed at with warning and orders,
But boldly they ran and well,
Into the door of the cafeteria
Plunged the six hundred
Girls to the right, boys to the left.
Forming two lines.
Plashed all their trays bare,
Plashed as they turned in air.
Still going 'forward.
Plunged they into the bread line,
Riglit tliru the line they broke.
Spilling potatoes and squash.
Boldly they went forward still.
Then they sat down to eat.
Rut not the six hundred.
When can their glory, fade ?
Oh, the wild charge they made!
All the observers wondered.
Honor the charge they made!
Honor the Light Brigade,
Noble Six Hundred,
Who could eat in a half hour.
(Before the new dinner rule. With due
apologies to Tennyson.)
EPISTLES OF HIRAM
Yu orter see this here new kinda lesson
what they teaches here. When everybody
else is a’studyin’ a ’hole buncha us marches
out in th’ back lot an’ stan’s in grate long
rows. Then a man gits up in front and
bawls reel loud, “ Uh, to, three, four,” an’
keeps on a’hollerin’ th’ same thing. An’
when he does it we all hafta reech out an’
hit th’ feller in fronta us, ’cept we don’t
quite reech him, an’ n’en bring our fistes
back and hit ourselfs. An’ we hafta do
it reel fas’ to. N’en we reech out t’ th’ side
an’ tries to grab the feller nex’ t’ us an’
we can’t reech him ether. It looks t’ me
like a ’hole lotta grabin’ f’ somepin what
ain’t there. N’en we hafta ben’ t’ won
side an’ n’en t’ th’ other, an’t’ th’ front.
They don’t make us ben’t’ th’ back tho’.
An’ yu hafta turn yu head all around like
as if it was wound up an’ screwed on.
Then we does a lotta crazy wiggles an’
standin’ on yu toes, an’ n’en whatcha call
breethin’ ’xercise, what’s standin’ still an’
a ■wigglin’ yu shoulders. N’en we git in
sircles an’ chase each other ’round with
straps an’ n’en we stan’ in rows a lookin’ at
each other an, both tries t’ grab a bottle
’cept they call it a club. Jim .says it’s
fizzicul ejucasion, whatever that is, but yu
sho’ do hafta -^vork f’ it. Hit’s .sposed t’
be hellthy, Jim says.
