Sergeant says

sergeant says
“i am the light fading out … your nation needs you”

oh former ranger so good at yer job
and softly softly
“we can but only ask”
for on the qt
“we really need you ranger, now nurse … as much or as little as your noble heart desires”

and there’s goodly goodness in it
and the knowledge of having given heed
to your nation in need

and you needn’t go to persia
no, if you dare stay right at home,
or hie thee instead to italia
where the nuns are sweetest
in springtime rome

where we can have you before
this present winter’s bitter end
