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.
