The Charm of the Light Brigade

Charm to the right of them,

Charm to the left of them,

Charm to the front of them,

Charmed and recharmed them.

Into the mouth of charm,

Into the jaws of charm,

Rode the taxpayers.

Theirs not to make reply,

Theirs not to reason why,

Theirs but to pay or die.

Noble taxpayers.
