80                   ON ACTIVE SERVICE
You puts on your respirator an' allows the
stuff to pass. Wen you're up against a feller with a bayonet
long an' keen, Just 'ave purchase of your weapon an' you'll
drill the beggar clean. Wen man and 'oss is chargin' you, upon your
knees you kneel, An' catch the 'oss's breastbone with an inch
or two of steel. It's sure to end its canter, an' as the creature
stops The rider pitches forward an' you catch 'im as
'e drops. It's w'en 'e sees 'is danger, an' 'e knows 'is way
about That a bloke is damned unlucky if e's knocked
completely out.
