honour thy soldier

the rockets

 

red glare

 

flesh burning

 

in the air

 

freedom

 

is not free

 

honour is

 

a loaded weapon

 

bought and sold

 

with the souls

 

of brave soldiers

 

following orders

 

of masterminds

 

playing a skewered

 

game of chess

 

in wonderland

 

shouting off

 

with their heads

 

to the first faction

 

to disagree with

 

their tight set of rules

 

honour thy soldier

 

for he know not

 

what he does

 

and he certainly

 

does not get enough

 

credit for all that

 

he does do

 

in the name of service
