As Breaker Morant Once Said...

“It really ain’t the place nor time to reel off rhyming diction, but yet we’ll write a final rhyme while waiting crucifixion. For we bequeath a parting tip of sound advice for such men who come in transport ships to polish off the Dutchman. If you encounter any Boers, you really must not loot ’em, and if you wish to leave these shores, for pity’s sake, don’t shoot ’em.”

And heck, these days, even a fat lip is out of bounds.

(And regarding the late actor who portrayed Harry “Breaker” Morant, Terry Teachout of the Wall Street Journal and Commentary has a fine encomium to the recently deceased Edward Woodward’s later work as The Equalizer on his blog.)
