I had a couple of hours and came up with this: "The Charge of the Leitz Brigade" I Half a grand, half a grand, Half a grand upward, Into the valley of Debt Rode the $6,000. "Forward the Leitz Brigade! Charge for the lens!" he said. Into the valley of Debt Rode the $6,000. II "Forward the Leitz Brigade!" Was there a clerk dismayed? Not though the dealer knew Someone had squandered. Theirs not to make reply, Theirs not to reason why, Theirs but to spend and die. Into the valley of Debt Rode the $6,000. III Canon to right of them, Nikon to left of them, Sony in front of them Credit cards melting; Gazed at with shock and awe, Boldly they spent and well, Into the jaws of Debt, Into the mouth of hell Rode the $6,000. IV Flashed all their money bare, Flashed as they felt despair Buying the cam'ras there Charging an arm and leg! All the world wondered. Plunged into bankruptcy-broke They almost had a stroke Crosseyed and fussin'. Bank account is now a joke Savings all squandered. Then they rode back, but not Not the $6,000. V Canon to right of them, Nikon to left of them, Sony behind them Tortured and lured them; Cam'ras all digital, Put on a pedestal. They that had spent so well Came through the jaws of Debt, Back from the mouth of hell, All that was left of them, Left of $6,000. VI When can their Debts all fade? O the wild charge they made! All the world wondered. Honour the charge they made? Honour the Leitz Brigade? Not with $600!
