Enduring the Sinai

The Sinai Desert
Curse this God-forsaken Land,
Curse this everlasting Sand,
Curse the heat and Curse the Sun—
Curse the three times Cursèd Hun
Who this cursèd war begun!

Keep a Curse of Largest size
For these billion million flies!

There, that's better. Finish Curse—
After all, things might be worse—
But the heat is so depressing,
And the flies are so distressing,
That its very good to Curse.
'Dugout Doggerels', John More
