Tobias Willis Nicolas Short,
Was once chief council to the mighty king's court,
But, he engaged the king in intellectual sport,
Then, off to the war front he had to report,

Tobias Willis Nicolas Short,
Led his troops on a charge that he had to abort,
"Coward" they called him back at the fort,
"It was an unattainable win" was Short's own retort,

Tobias Willis Nicolas Short,
Sentenced to die in some foreign port,
Then, shot by some soldiers that gave him escort,
While, Short clutched a picture of his mother Dort.
