I don't give a damn if some Thracian ape strut
Proud of that first-rate shield the bushes got.
Leaving it was hell, but in a tricky spot
I kept my hide intact. Good shields can be bought.
Some lucky Thracian has my shield,
For being somewhat flurried
I dropped it in a wayside bush
As from the field I hurried.
Thank God, I made it clean away—
To blazes with the shield!
I'll get another just as good
When next I take the field.
