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 5/3/2006
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.
