“But since the man that runs away
Lives to die another day,
And cowards’ funerals, when they come,
Are not wept so well at home,
“Therefore, though the best is bad,
Stand and do the best, my lad;
Stand and fight and see your slain,
And take the bullet in your brain.”
— A. E. Housman, The Day of Battle
