Ranger Poetry

This could be by Kipling. It sounds like him but I haven't seen it in any of his books. It is chiseled into the stone wall of a guard house on Gibraltar.

God and the Soldier,

All men adore,

In time of trouble,

Then no more.

For when war is over,

And all wrongs righted,

God is neglected;

The Old Soldier slighted.
