    lyric

    The Man He Killed

    “Had he and I but met
    By some old ancient inn,
    We should have sat us down to wet
    Right many a nipperkin!
    “But ranged as infantry,
    And staring face to face,
    I shot at him as he at me,
    And killed him in his place.
    “I shot him dead because —
    Because he was my foe,
    Just so: my foe of course he was;
    That’s clear enough; although
    “He thought he’d ’list, perhaps,
    Off-hand like — just as I —
    Was out of work — had sold his traps —
    No other reason why.
    “Yes; quaint and curious war is!
    You shoot a fellow down
    You’d treat if met where any bar is.
    Or help to half-a-crown.”


    Is it right if i write that the kind of this poem is lyric?
