One commitment,

a ticket to hell.

Death comes unexpectedly,

so down he fell.

A letter home,

cries heard round the world.

Family in despair,

but no one else cares.

Another person,

a women this time,

her life was perfect,

everything rhymed.

She thought she could

help out fight the war,

but next week her boyfriend

will get the letter, saying she's met her end.

God bless (as a certain friend says)

to all those people out there.

Trying to be so strong

when they're fighting a war.

It's so right to defend one's country,

it's wrong.
