The General Spake

Hamsters cannot march
with certainty she said
then extolled the military bearing
of cauliflowers instead.

Aubergines and tinned sardines
make effective infantry
and little mice with pointy sticks
can flank your cavalry.

The efficacy of unicorns
was a matter of dispute
and circus bears are pacifists
and will never ever shoot.
