    From "The Gods of the Copybook Headings".

    When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.

    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.

    But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,

    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: 'STICK TO THE DEVIL YOU KNOW.

    excellent choice, very fitting. Have you ever read "Moose goosers" by Kipling? Quite interesting piece.
