Oh those men who took the hill that day

In a foreign land so far away,

Too many died as they gained the beach

A thousand drowned weighted in the breach.

Who knew what strengths would fill all these men

When courage chose to inspire again

And charge the hill filled with fire and brim

Like hell’s front gate at volcano rim ?

While the memories still haunt their nights

With death’s dark vision midst blinding lights,

What’s wrong with this world in which we live

When is time ripe to learn to forgive ?
