peace keeping

Four of us stood waiting, looking and not beleiving
For we was in a foreign land
making our countrys demands.

monotumous air filled the silence 
which drifted over the land
we are the lions and the innocent are the lambs.

We got trained to kill
to kill the avenging innocence
of the broken man. 

Attrocity lies in war
war is evil pursued by the innocent man.

Its always the innocent who dies
trying to keep order in thier holy land.

Soldiers graves are made 
defined by mud and stand
for those who fell protecting the innocence in the foreign lands
god bless you because the devil already lives in the torn and unforgiving land.
