The composer, d?oes not desire his identity known :- Thoughts in Mena Camp. (By the Camp Poet). We've settled down in Egypt, The land of flies and sand, - And tho' the life is rotten, The times we have are grand. We've scaled the Mighty Pyramids, And travelled o'er the plain, We've seen the tombs of mighty men, Returned to dust again. - Thro' Citadels and,Native towns, Thro' Forts and Mosques and Tower, Traditions speak of great renown, And days of wealth and power. But days of Pomp have passed away, From this fair sunny land, Too long has Turkey held her sway, Too long she held command. But still the future lies ahead, The day may come--who knows? When Egypt's hosts will rally--then, God help our common foes. The Union Jack now flies aloft, Bespeaking Br...
