Week 4 Poetry: The Charge of the McKittrick Brigade

This one was much harder than the previous ones were, but that may be because I hadn't had a couple of glasses of Wine. For those of you who do NOT know who Bobb McKittrick was, shame on you! {unless you are 10 years old}

The Charge of the McKittrick Brigade
by Alfred, Lord "Run-the-Ball" Tennyson



Run the Gore, Run the Gore
Run the Gore onward,
All in the Dome of Lambs
Run for six hundred
Run-protect the McKittrick Brigade!
Charge for First Downs! Ro said:
Into the Dome of Lambs
Run for six hundred

Pass-Protect,the McKittrick Brigade!
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the lineman knew
Roman had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and try:
Into the valley of Lambs
Run for six hundred.

Long to right of them,
Quinn to left of them,
Laurinitis in front of them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with blitz and shell,
Boldly they blocked and well,
Into the Valley of Lambs,
Into the Zone of Red
Run for six hundred

Flash'd all their weapons bare,
Flash'd as they motioned light as air,
Deeking the safeties there,
Charging a seam, while
All the Lambs wonder'd:
Plunged in the BBQ smoke
Right through the line they broke;
Langford and Brockers
Reel'd from the Ginger bloke
Shatter'd and sunder'd.
Then they rode back, but not
Not YET the six hundred.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wondered.
Honor the charge they made,
Honor the McKittrick Brigade!,
W.E....R.A.N....F.O.R....S.I.X....H.U.N.D.R.E.D!!!
