Twas not a soldier who started the fight,
twas some ‘leader’ tucked away somewhere out of sight.
But upon their shoulders the burden falls,
whilst the ‘leaders’ make all the calls.
Its their blood that is being drained and spilt,
whilst the ‘leaders’ upon the deaths their glory is built.
So even if you don’t agree on the fight being fought,
attach no blame to the soldier, their blame is nought.
But instead go and speak you mind,
Go and kick the ‘leaders’ behind.
For the old adage is worthy and true,
the pen is indeed mightier than any weapon used to slew.
