Hannibal's elephants had flapping ears and tusks with sharpened points Which he set upon the enemy to disembowel and break their joints A frightening, fearsome sight which had strong, brave men in a cower But along came General Scipio who found a way to break their power
Let them through, let them through he boldly told his troops Then from the side with our spears upon them we will swoop It worked a charm, the combat won for General Scipio A bloody battle fought in history many centuries ago
A few decades back fought a warrior who went by name of Artie Beetson In rugby league his rampaging style was considered highly fearsome He pushed and shoved and spun and hacked his way through the defence With skill, dexterity and agility which belied his size, immense
But even the fiercest warrior has no weapon to conquer time So after several years, he still played the game but at a different paradigm He turned out for a local club he owned, and his skills were still all there Even though his belly was twice the size and had only half his hair
He'd draw the defence, then effortlessly offload the ball to a flying team mate Tries were being scored left and right at a very rapid rate At half time, the coach, Joey Chambers pulled in tight his team Let him through, let him through, he said, with in his eye a gleam
Artie grabbed the ball, and began to run, he was a legend right enough But as he ran and ran and ran he ran right out of puff His legs began to wobble, his head began to spin Poor Artie hit the deck and that was the end of him.
