Young men and young woman make choices
To join the military tacking the Queens Shilling
Joining The Draft
As solders they die not knowing why
Rather than being Long-Term Unemployment
The Military - the only game in towns and citys
Being the only alternative for so many o so many
Returning Battled scarred - body's and minds!

Wars started by politicians who needed wars
For there own corrupt reasons
In Washington and in London they sit
Never them self's never put on uniforms
Send young men a young woman to die - die and
Never there own kin
Into foreign lands they know nothing about let alone why they are sent
Just why they are sent to wage war against those that in normal times
Would share laughter and smiles with - rather than bullets with
Thus it is so more in thees times we live in and die in!
Thus has it not been ever so?!
