Warrior of the Ages

Picture © Unknown

He is the warrior of the ages
He looks to his leaders
For direction
And control.
~
He was raised the way he is
To believe in God and Country
His Country
Right or Wrong.
~
He trusts his government
To direct him right,
But he don’t care
He just loves to fight.
~
For Duty and Honor
The Glory part he mostly forgets
When the bullets start to fly,
But he will not let his comrades down.
~
His first firefight is like
The first time he was drunk
Swore he would never
Do that again,
~
But yet he raised this cup
Again and again
Drinking and fighting
Is the name of his game.
~
Though in time he may
Put his cup down
He will never lay down arms,
For he will fight till the end of time.
~
It is in his genes,
Passed down from
Time in memorial
He was bred to fight.
~
He will find a way to believe
His side is right,
And even if he don’t
He will fight.
~
He loves it,
He may regret it later,
May stress and dream
Bad dreams.
~
But mostly he does not,
He will not change
No mater how many
Songs are sung.
~
Saying that he
Is the Universal Soldier
And he really is
The one to blame.
