Tuesday's Metal...

By Chinga
The Theme: Metal

Forward, the Light Brigade! - "Charge for the guns!"
Cannon to right of them, cannon to left of them,
Cannon in front of them -volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell, boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death, into the mouth of Hell ...rode the six hundred...
Part of a poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

I had to learn that poem in 5th grade and can still recite it!
That is a mean looking piece of metal!

Great poem. It just goes to show that some of the material we were force fed at school has left a lasting impression although I would have liked to have "found" this wonderful poem by myself and at a more appreciative age.

Mean looking and powerful.
Excellent images of historical interest. If I remember correctly, Tennyson was writing about the Battle of Balaclava.
