Guardians of the gun and sword


Trading in hypocrisy and hate


The thin gray line, the mighty horde


March off to meet their fate


With bloody hands and conscience clean


They hide between the spaces


The real gain remains unseen


Men perish in untold places


At dayís end theyíll count the cost


An old manís war, the bill is paid


And back at home the cause is lost


Young boys lose their dreams in trade


In Godís name or for the nations


And never in the voice of reason


For those who stand at battle stations


May never know another season

A very poignant tale and more true than many realize....

Be safe,
Karen
