I bled for you – would you for me?
I blessed a skin in blazing fuel
Then took a bullet in a duel of
‘He or I to Die.’
I often question ‘Why? ’
My country was my life to give –
Would you for country cease to live?
Sinking in a mire of death,
You have no choice –
So while you’re still alive,
I cried in failure – did you care?
And as I waned, were you aware of
What I did?
Fighting for my country while you hid
Behind your comfort back at home?
My wife and children are fading at the tomb.
