A poem by Rudyard Kipling 

Last two versus:

If your officer's dead and the sergeants look white,
Remember it's ruin to run from a fight:
So take open order, lie down, and sit tight,
   And wait for supports like a soldier.
      Wait, wait, wait like a soldier . . .
When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
   An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.
      Go, go, go like a soldier,
      Go, go, go like a soldier,
      Go, go, go like a soldier,
         So-oldier of the Queen!

Some tips on home decor

Your house should be a reflection of yourself, so be imaginative, don't use ordinary lamps, look around, there has to be something out there to suit you...

I mean...let's face it, with that new chair you have in teh dining room...
regular off the shelf lamps just won't work..
