Poor Marshall Ney - Poem by David Semenske

Poor Marshall Ney
Could not keep Wellington at Bay
As he defended Gaul

Napoleon fussed and fumed
Spain Portugal he presumed
As Ney lost it all

To Wellington and his command
Who used a better battle plan
Employing deceit and deception

Confusing Ney
Ruining his day
distorting his perception

And at St. Lo
Ney knew not how to go
Wellington won there too

So Napoleon relieved him of command
Devising his own battle plan
And lost at Waterloo


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote it a number of years ago while researching an answer to a trivia quiz. Funny thing is that the question had nothing to do with Ney but one thing led to another and another and another and soon I was reading about Wellington and Ney.
