THE ALPHABET WAR

Alphabet war......... A is for aggressor, they're the ones who start wars, B is for breath, when a bullet takes yours. C is for Chieftain, a great British tank, D for the death in trenches so dank. E for endowment that the army will give, F for the funeral, in case you don't live. G is for guns, that you carry around, H for the heather, when you're dead on the ground. I is identity, the tags round your neck, J for the jangles, while on sentry you check. K for the killer, with weapon in hand, L for the love of your quiet homeland. M for my mother, my mentor is she, N is for nurture, what she did then for me. O you obliterate, any foe you will see, P for the pacifists, and for peace is their plea. Q for the Queen, and her country they fight, R is the rapier, aimed with optical sight. S for the soldiers, who've been trained in the field, T for the tanks, and the power they yield. U the unexpected sights you will see, V is for victory, and the love of the free. W for the wounded, which I hope you stay clear, X is for xenon and the chemicals we fear. Y for the youths this poem may teach, Z is for zenith, put your hands out and reach.
