I am the very model of a Russian Major General
My standing in the battlefield in growing quite untenable
My forces, though equipped and given orders unequivocal
Did not expect the fight to be remotely this reciprocal.
I used to have a tank brigade but now I have lost several
My fresh assaults are failing with battle schemes extemporal
I can’t remove vehicles but farmers in a tractor can
Its all becoming rather reminiscent of Afghanistan!
Big shout to Herr Reinbold, for the spot and Andrej kv of Gilbert & Sullivan Society Of Facebook who wrote this gem.
