When Duty Called

Arlington National Cemetery

He crawled in his hole and waited

Thunder booming all around him

The sky was bright with after fire

His heart beat like that of a rabbit

He was all alone in that dark hole

All alone with his thoughts and dreams

His young life flashing before his eyes

Knowing not if he were the huntsman

Or the hunted in this Theatre of War

A brave young man who didn’t dodge

Instead gave his all when duty called
