=======================================
THE ENGINEER POEM

We lay down the rolling roads, and rut down all their trees.
And if the order ever came we'd forge the raging seas.
And when they need to sleep awhile, we put them up a town.
And build all their bridges so the infantry won't drown.
We get them over rivers and across mountain streams.
Do everything but tuck them in and wish them pleasant dreams.
And when the going gets really rough, and bombs burst in their
ears, a whole Division is apt to pray for God to..
SEND IN THE ENGINEERS
