A young soldier has collapsed against the trunk of a palm tree. An officer on a weary donkey stops and says to him, "Go ahead and march, you sluggard, go ahead and march. I'm just as tired as you are, but I keep going all the same." the caption under the cartoon reads "Are you waiting for the bus?" (Virginia K. Anderson 04/10/95)
