Second to None, by J. Arlborough

As Constabulary, beneath the lightning –
Bolt, they held a war-torn Germany from chaos
By gentle strength and upright example; a
Supporting hand to the weak and a relentless
Foe to those who fed on war’s debris.

The orange gave way to the gold and green
And the horse to a thing of fire and flame
And steel, groomed to keep the peace so
Dearly won; but more than a century is there
To proclaim that where the cause is worthy,
Where the fighting is thickest, where the
Need is greatest, the Second Armored Cavalry
Is always there, Always Ready.
