An officer before the assault.

Aevitas

An officer, whistle between his lips

Was watching his wristwatch’s skips;

But a soldier shouts: “It’s time, Sir!”

And yet the lieutenant does not stir.

The confused men look at each other;

He turns pale; clutches firmly his ladder.

“Not yet. The hand is not quite there.

- Then where?”

For above, a cloud of green gas arose

And towards the British the wind blows.

The officer has not yet noticed the scene:

“Y-You see, Jones, it was striking thirteen.”
