The Seconds that tick as the clock moves alongAre Privates who march with a spirit so strong.The Minutes are Captains. The Hours of the dayAre Officers brave, who lead on to the fray.So, remember, when tempted to loiter and dreamYou've an army at hand; your command is supreme;And question yourself, as it goes on review--Had it helped in the fight with the best it could do?
