Lest We Forget

An Ode To MCKK

We offer our youth
To the world we build
With courage and truth
And love fulfilled

A city will rise
That is bright and fair
Into cloudless skies
And fresh clean air

Proudly we’ll serve
With faith will strain
Muscle and nerve
And heart and brain

‘til wisdom descends
Like a silver dove
‘til evil ends
And the law is love

- Anthony Burgess, 1954
