Who never lost, are unprepared
A Coronet to find!
Who never thirsted
Flagons, and Cooling Tamarind!
 
Who never climbed the weary league—
Can such a foot explore
The purple territories
On Pizarro’s shore?
 
How many Legions overcome—
The Emperor will say?
How many Colors taken
On Revolution Day?
 
How many Bullets bearest?
Hast Thou the Royal scar?
Angels! Write “Promoted”
On this Soldier’s brow!
