Uniformed Patriot


A valuable life in the throws of war,
Risking everything on patriotic duty.
Taught to kill on a survival instinct,
While rapid fire spreads around them.
Decision to annihilate another man,
Or be the next expendable victim,
In a crass political showdown.

Without question he will obey,
Fulfilling his country's orders.
For the good of a nation,
He sacrifices his whole self,
Becoming a uniformed patriot.

Reviewed by Chanti Niven
One can only salute the bravery of those who willingly give up their lives for their countries but it is always so tragic. Well written.
