Wikitoria! — Field Day — (Ce n'est pas la guerre)


Field Day

(Ce n'est pas la guerre)

The Gibraltar correspondent of the British United Press learns from a most reliable source that recent air raids were carried out as bombing practice for German airmen. General Franco is opposed to this, as he fears repercussions and feels that enough of Spain has been damaged, but the Germans are anxious to test out bombers and pilots, and have threatened to withhold war material unless they are allowed to drop bombs.—United Press Association, June 8.

Fiance's friends' pranks tend
To rather a macabre flavour,
Their latest war machines they lend.
Requesting as a little favour.
Some bombing practice now and chen.
Entrivened with the realistic savour
Of architectural dust; and guts and gore;
And should the Rebel paien dare waver.
Big, Brother might remit supplies no more.
But just foreclose the mortagage
And take over all the war.
Observant British officers in Spain
Revieic these full-dress shoes.
Some bombing practice now and them. Chamberlain
Is ready, and the Big Reveille blows.
Now, little Franco, don't despair.
We'll make your party gay.
Let's hold a League reunion here
And hare a Bombers' holiday.
