I Am Not A Coward!

I am not a coward; I just do not want to die
Fighting for politicians that deceive and lie
Put their loved ones on the front line, and let them fall
Before they implement a policy that affects us all

I am not a coward; I won’t fight without a vest
Their expense claims get bigger, so they drive the best
Yet my tank is cheap and is not fit for purpose
The prime minister, the ring master directing this circus

I am not a coward; but I do not want to fight
As it is they who are rewarded for my plight
I am not a coward; I am not a hero
But I will not die as retaliation for ground zero
