BREAKFAST, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: We ate our breakfast lying on our backs
Last Line: Because the shells were screeching overhead.
Subject(s): World War I; First World War


We ate our breakfast lying on our backs,
Because the shells were screeching overhead.
I bet a rasher to a loaf of bread
That Hull United would beat Halifax
When Jimmy Stainthorpe played full-back instead
Of Billy Bradford. Ginger raised his head
And cursed, and took the bet; and dropt back dead.
We ate our breakfast lying on our backs,
Because the shells were screeching overhead.
