A Soldier's Life

A Soldier's Life

Tags: honour

Bully boys all

I took the Bristish steel

On Bunker Hill.

I sent grape shot

On Lake Erie. 

I fixed bayonets 

On Little Round Top.

I felt the knife

At Greasy Grass.

I moved up the hill

Bully Boys all.

I bled red

Feeding poppy fields. 

I swatted mosquitoes

On the deck of Yorktown.

I froze white

At the reservoir.

I rode a green horse

Over the lush jungle.

I drove though

The hot sandbox.

I am an American Soldier.
