To those of you who can’t recall,
One war was fought to end them all
How foolish was it that we thought
This war would be the last we fought !
The lesson that we should have learned
Our history too often spurned,
Like those who never went to war
Don’t have a clue what war is for !
The bloody battles, millions dead
Broken bodies, hunger and dread
These mean nothing, you weren’t there
You have not known this great despair !
You think that war is just some game
Untouched by loss, you are the same
You sleep, you eat, you talk the talk
But you have never walked the walk !
Oh cowards all, that’s who you are
You speak so grand from oh so far
But show us now what you can do
Tis time you shared your colors true !
