Captain Tom, The Old Soldier

This poem is all about Captain Tom Moore and his wonderful campaign.

Captain Tom’s a soldier, and

A modest sort of man

At ninety nine he worked out

A money raising plan

He said I’ll get my walking frame

Do a hundred laps of my yard

Before my hundredth birthday

It shouldn’t be that hard

So Tom set out on his crusade

He hoped to raise a grand

To give to nursing charities

Who need a helping hand

Tom marched up and down his yard

Medals glinting on his chest

The nation took to him to their hearts

And cheered him on his quest

Donations flowed like water

The hundred laps were done

The thousands turned to millions

But old Tom soldiered on

We saluted you, the hero

Of your war campaigns

And now in times of trouble

We salute you once again.

God bless you, Tom Moore
