Our soldiers are sent by their country to fight

to some terrible places both near and far

into violent spots where they are in plight

the chance each could be in a state of mar

there they are told to keep our nation free

but amongst the carnage I just cannot see!


Millions have died away from their home shore

whoever the foe we’re not able to stop

what’s their agenda we just don’t know

more difficult to define part of a fanatical crop

as in the past battles were fought one on one

or easy to tell bystanders from those with the gun.


Pressure’s mounting as the injured and dead are returned

nobody certain what the true figures are out there.

The general public are getting very concerned

strong support for our soldiers they’re aware.

According to the media reporting each day

our lads are not being treated with fair play.



It was awful to hear about the young soldier it is said with the worst injuries known who acctually has survived. And his family has fought so hard to get an increase in his compensation. It is still a little amount to give this young Hero a decent life. I wish him and his family good luck. And hope that life will get better for them all.

The Foureyed Poet.
