Jonathan Lazarus Tee

you’ve always been easy
   in the presence of
hostile fire

leadership understated
   by your bravery among
the lads.

it was a great tragedy to
   see you fallen by a
sneak attack.

... bones shattered, the enemy
   advancing in every
direction

... pain dimly reflected
   in your face.

but now you’ve rallied &
   the blighters are being
driven back into
   hades.

victory is at
   hand & you’re standing.
soon to run, leap & hopefully
   return to work.

your fierce nobility is a
   model to all,
especially your comrades &
   your friends.
