Similarly, Muriel Bruce’s Kitchener’s Question directly confronts the violence and exhorts Canadian men to enlist and take the place of those who have fallen.
There are men in dear old England
Who’ve lost a leg or two;
There are men who’ll live in darkness,
There are men who won’t pull through;
Now who will take their places?
There is much work yet to do,
“Canadians, men of the Empire!
Now don’t you think that this means you?”
