A Statue of Our Favorite War Hero

By Lawrence “Mack in Texas” Hall (Rated G)

Let us build a statue of Sergeant Schultz
Standing bravely at the door of Baracke 2
With a bouquet of flowers in one mighty hand
And a slice of apple strudel in the other

And on the base let there be deeply engraved
“In war I do not like to take sides.”
On the reverse we will write, “I see nothing!”
And then perhaps on the sides, “Ach du liebe!”

Let us build a statue of Sergeant Schultz
On earth’s last ever battlefield


Editor’s Note: Sergeant Schultz is from the comedy TV show Hogan’s Heroes, which ran from 1965 to 1971 on CBS.
