Answering Victoria’s Call

Photo credit Sarah Whiley

Riding out across the veldt

Answering the call of queen and dominion

Under an African sun and heat oppressive

Far from Aus’ familiar hearth and home

Toiling through the dust and flies

And the Dutchman’s machinations

For duty’s sake they ride on

For the glory of Victoria’s nation
