Hi Lorraine, thanks for your kind comments. The caption is a play on swords in respect of the nursery rhyme called 'ten green bottles'. See below:

"Ten Green Bottles" is a song that is popular in the UK. In essence, the song is a single verserepeated, each time with one bottle fewer:
"Ten Green Bottles hanging on the wall,
Ten Green Bottles hanging on the wall,
And if one Green Bottle should accidentally fall,
There'll be Nine Green Bottles hanging on the wall."

" Nine Green Bottles hanging on the wall,
Nine Green Bottles hanging on the wall,
And if one Green Bottle should accidentally fall,
There'll be Eight Green Bottles hanging on the wall."
