Fields Of Blood

Can you hear the sound,
Of drummers marching?
Can you hear the pipes,
As the pipers are playing.

Go forth, yon brave men,
Fight for the country today.
March on, march for battle,
The fields will run with blood.

Centuries ago, they fought for country,
Times never change for they fight still.
Guns replace swords, bombs replace arrows,
Go forth brave souls, you are fighting still.

When this battle ends, remember the dead,
They fought with honour, fought with pride.
Be remembered boys, we will not forget thee,
There will be flowers, always, on fields of blood

    Indeed, the nature of warfare has changed a great deal, Chris. Cavemen were probably throwing rocks at each other. Now we step up into a world filled with weapons of mass destruction. Is this evolution -- or really the reverse. Bigger and more effective ways of killing, but as you say, we owe our debt to those who defend our freedom. A great poem for my favorites! Love, Carolyn
