Poem from the Trench Newspaper The Busy Beaver, Christmas Issue, 1916
This anonymous poem, entitled Trench Rhymes, is a typical example of the type of ironic poetry the soldiers published in trench newspapers. These papers reported some news, but above all provided a medium in which soldiers could express themselves, becoming a very popular form of entertainment.
