GEORGE AMADI


KC Cadet Unit


'Left, right, left, right...',
that, I liked,
My self-esteem at King's
it surely hiked.
The Mark-IV rifle, though,
long and heavy,
Didn't scare me one bit,
such costly levy.

I, my haversack loaded
to the brim,
Went nowhere near the
Pacific Rim;
A first-class shot, not once
war saw,
But yearly did brawl in a
mock war.

Aright, still, King's Cadet
Unit plies,
Oh, how quickly, indeed,
time flies.
If given a chance again
to present arms,
proudly, that, I'd seize
with open arms.

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
