May be this will help you:

"Had he and I but met
By some old ancient inn,                But ranged as infantry,
We should have sat us down to wet       And staring face to face,
Right many a nipperkin!                 I shot at him as he at me,
                                        And killed him in his place.
I shot him dead because --
Because he was my foe,                  He thought he'd 'list, perhaps,
Just so: my foe of course he was;       Off-hand-like -- just as I --
That's clear enough; although           Was out of work -- had sold his traps
                                        No other reason why.
Yes; quaint and curious war is!
You shoot a fellow down
You'd treat, if met where any bar is
Or help to half-a-crown."
                -- Thomas Hardy
