Ah! Wounded soldier

Broken arm

Failing strength

Slowing heart

At such a time as this

Would you continue the battle

Would you surrender

Those who continue soon die

Those who surrender still perish

This becomes a puzzle to men

Confusion on the right decision

Yet no time to dilly dally

Leaving decision to action point

Is in itself unwise and deadly

Never get to the battle front

Without a well mapped strategy

Be sure of the plan’s  strength and success

Yet let your sole hope be in the general divine

This should let you know

Despite all, hearts sometime goes slow

And this is not when to remain on show

You should neither fight on nor give in

Its time to ensure you retreat and reinforce
