The News In Rime                                                                                                   

The Russians are sending
Battalions unending
To France, in the midst of alarms;
The Czar lacks munitions,
The dodge which conditions
He's shipping the Men to the arms.

And while they are sailing,
Are submarines trailing
And trying to get them? Not much!
The U-boats are slinking
Near freighters and sinking
Non-combatant liners and such.
