[There was a Young Hun of Berlin]

There was a young Hun of Berlin
Who picked up a bomb with the pin;
When he took the pin out he was sent with a clout
To the place all Huns should be in.

Fan.

Editor’s notes:
Hun = Germans (“Hun” could be used in a singular sense to refer to an individual German, as well as in a collective sense to refer to the German military or to Germans in general) (similar to the usage of “Fritz”)
