For some ...it will happen to quickly

There’s not too many atheist
Occupy trenches in a theatre of war
And after the lead starts flying
You’ll find there’s even less than there were before

For soldiers have their own God,
On whom that soldier calls
And soldiers have an inbuilt need
To protect whom, the threat of this war falls

These Soldiers heed the call to fight,
For country, God & King
They call on God with mud filled sight
For the other two can’t do a thing

From an enemy that is many
And the carnage, that they cause
For escape, there is not any
But a bullet, that brings a pause

From the muddied blood streaked helmet
In the cold unseeing stare
Lay the answer of this soldiers fear
And an unsaid,.. slit trench prayer
