How Luckless the Fortune How luckless the fortune we soldiers endure Uncertain our pleasures, mischances are sure. If friends should bind us, or loves softer tie The drum beats; from friends and love we must fly. Submissive to fate, then adieu to the fair. Peace, smile on our friends, and redeem them from care. May angels indulgent detach'd from above Soon vanquish fell discord with friends and love, From Songs from the American Revolution, Keller collected from the notebooks of Captain George Bush (no relation), 1779 RG
