Garibaldi's last stand

Times were hard,
rations were thin,
soldiers were starving,
there was a war to win.

The cold was biting,
morale was low,
soldiers were starving,
progress was slow.

Italy was fractured,
General Garibaldi at a loss,
soldiers were starving,
there was a line to cross.

The General spoke out,
"Take this dough and mix it."
soldiers weren't starving,
they ate Garibaldi's biscuit.

Biscuit: Garibaldi Biscuits
Taste test: 4.5 out of 10
Cost: 89p from Tesco in the New Forest


  1. A unique view of history through the eyes of biscuit lovers - a good concept to pursue. How about The Bourbons next?

  2. I'm so sorry the taste test scored so low as the poem deserved a 10.


Please tell us what you think about our poems and the biscuits
