Internet Reunion


I saw his picture on the internet
Smiling broadly there out at me
Ensconced in the sergeants' mess
Circa nineteen seventy three

He called me Corporal
I called him sir
But not in the pub
When no one was there

It could have been a triangle
A complicated sort of life
But I arranged that date
After which she became his wife

He called me Corporal
I called him sir
But not in the pub
When no one was there

I heard he was commissioned
Made Hald Colonel in the end
Who would have believed it
Of my old friend

He called me Corporal
I called him sir
But not in the pub
When no one was there

IĎve not seen them
Since nineteen sixty four
Then I saw his picture on the net
Smiling there at me once more
