The Reason Why

"'Forward, the Light Brigade!'
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldier knew

Some one had blunder'd.
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die.
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred
(Alfred Tennyson, "The Charge of the Light Brigade", 2 December 1854).
