ARE WE CHANGED FROM WHAT WE
WERE ?
Are we changed from what we were ?
NoŚwe're all our fathers' sons ; Their deeds our pulses stir ;
Through our veins their great blood runs. Their ways to us are strange ;
Our life is different far ; But in heart we know no change ;
What our fathers were, we are.
More than they did, we love peace
And a quiet life. What then ? Though we would that war should cease,
For that, are we less men ? We've all their bull-dog breed,
Though less prone to growl by far Though a peaceful life we'd lead,
What our fathers were, we are.
