Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 5, No. 2 April 23, 1942


Oh, yes! I shall follow you now; i shall stand with you and fight beside you. And I shall sing with you us we go into battle, and be happy with you. I shall grasp your hand as we march along, and cheer you when you speak. I shall pray for your King, and follow you. I shall do as you tell me and save you from what you fear.

And then, after, I shall get me a long knife, and I shall creep up behind you as you stand. Then I shall plunge my knife into your broad back, deep in, to reach your black heart. And I shall watch the blood soil through your black coat as you lie in the road.

Then I shall walk away, with the blood on my hands—laughing, because I hate you so much.
