Onward Christian Soldiers

Today is Remembrance Day – Veterans Day 2012. Gavin wrote a very fitting beautiful post earlier, Respectfully, we are almost there again. Below is part two of his post with a poem written by Gavin from his Ten Years of the Heart collection, Onward Christian Soldiers.

 

Onward Christian Soldiers   

   Written by Gavin Hill 

We fight so hard,

we fight so long,

down in the trenches,

it’s all so wrong,

onward Christian soldiers,

that’s our dying song.

 We fight for our freedom,

we fight for our lives,

our children at home,

our friends and our wives,

and down in the trenches,

it’s all so wrong,

onward Christian soldiers,

that’s our dying song.

And soaked bodies

lie in the mud below,

load another red hot gun

and let those bullets go.

 We fight so hard,

we fight so long,

down in the trenches,

it’s all so wrong,

onward Christian soldiers,

that’s our dying song,

just another dying song.

Until next time with more Sweet Conclusions and Time out with Gavin and Rosie
