DUG-OUT PROVERBS                  117
And if one shelters you a night tend it roof and
rafter, And make it better than it was—for those who
follow after.
"The trench is calm," you say, my son. The
Boche is keeping quiet. Then keep your rifle close at hand. We soon
shall have a riot.
A soldier's life is risky; it may end damn quick.
Well, let it! Since we get five francs every week we'll burst
it when we get it.
You may cough and sneeze in your dug-out,
but you can't go anywhere. There's little health around the house—the dead
are lying there.
