The Spike or Victoria College Review 1937
Jason, who planted dragon's teeth
Reaped his harvest of mailed men by subtlety
And Medea's magic aid.
To-day they plant flags upon the sward
But when the flags fade
And their pins sprout as spear and sword
Who will hurl the charmed helmet
Into this charity-made sentiment-nurtured glade
Of potential gladiators?
A shilling sir, only a bob for a flag
May help some slum-blighted boy to health,
Fit again to defend his master's wealth
When we name der tag.
