Marching to the Front Line

(Night before)
Smiling for the camera; fools!
Oh little you know, of tomorrow.
Majors, General’s, Government
Misinforming – ‘gung ho, what ho!
Enjoy your adventure lads’. Blind

(Next day)
Slither of dawn – shouts ring out
‘Over the top – on your feet my lads
Make em pay’ – Charging voices die out
Machined gunned down like dominos
Extinguished adventure – Drowned
