Why do we send men to their deaths?

Submitted:Nov 2, 2011    Reads: 23    Comments: 1    Likes: 2   

Dutifully trying, gracefully dying,

Steeped in glory?

Once more unto the breach.


Smart in rank, Alert on flank,

Forward in honour?

Once more unto the breach.


Colours fly, battle cry,

Soon to be heroes?

Once more unto the breach.


Drenched in mud, drunk with blood,

Force of victory?

Slaughtered in the breach.
