I Guess This Means

…things haven’t changed much.

When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An’ go to your Gawd like a soldier.

Sound depressingly, horrifyingly familiar?
Today’s history slice brought to you by the Stone Age, a commenter over at HotAir…

…and Rudyard Kipling’sThe Young British Soldier“.
