The Young Are Ordered Off To War

Written by: Rick Zablocki

The young are ordered off to war
Depart too early from this World
Generals safe behind the lines

Politicians debate the need
Everyone desires Peace
The young are ordered off to war

Fighting for their countrymen
Duty asks to risk their lives
Generals safe behind the lines

The cause is just that's what some say
The cause confused by Fog of Lies
The young are ordered off to war

Brave the young who face their dying
Unknown enemies all surround
Generals safe behind the lines

Sadly war makes history
Death to many before Old Age
The young are ordered off to war
Generals safe behind the lines
