Just for a hoot, look up lyrics of different national anthems sometimes. Ours is about a war and that probably says something about us. Just about everybody says they hate war nowadays. There was a time, maybe a few thousand years ago, when war was just fine, glorious even-like the mother’s advice in a Viking poem:
“Get thee a ship and go out on the sea and kill men.”
“Oh, mom, do I have to?” (I added that last line.) 🙂
So what happens when Napoleon wants Pascal, the anti-war mudskipper, to sing the national anthem?
