Thank God I Went

How will you fare sonny,
how will you fare in the far off winter night,
when you sit by a fire in an old man's chair,
and your neighbors talk of the fight?
Will you slink away as it were from a blow,
your old head shamed and bent?
Or will you say "I was not the first to go.
But I went—thank God I went."
