The Ravages of War

The ravages of war
It’s anyone’s guess
Who will be eating at the very next mess
Who will live to recall what they have done
Who will declare to the world they are number one
War doesn’t know or see who you are
War doesn’t know where you are
Divided by virtues dying for sins
Captains and Colonels fight till they win
War teaches techniques to keep soldiers alive
Always advancing stride after stride
Don’t think of turning back
Don’t think you can hide
Don’t love anyone that’s not on your side
Nights in the trenches bring thoughts in the dark
Fires are burning just like home in the park
The war is asleep till the sun rises and then
Soldiers will die again and again.
