THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON

Entertainment

Cover his body in red

  To show that he gave blood

  And has yet some blood to give.

  Cover his chest in silver

  To show that he spent life

  And has yet some life to spend.

  But leave his eyes—

  They are his own—

  And show us nothing but himself.
