(A Soldier’s Lament)

 

I know not

What golden age

Awaits us

If we get through

These difficult times

 

I know not

How much more

We’ll pay

For stately whims

Others’ sins and crimes

 

I care not

For the colossal constraints

Or the apparent disdain

Of such myopic men

But if! Oh if!

We never yield an inch

I Know I shall not

Have died in vain.
