The Fighting man- rewrite

He goes out armoured In knowledge, brains and mind He goes off to the war of no blood Fought with the steady word Infantry his words, Artillery his wits, His sarcasm bayonets, his bombast cannon blasts Diplomatic innuendoes Philosophical crescendos Are not mere statements But victory bringing elements He faints not and fights on For himself, family and nation The fighting man strives on For his ideals, God and axioms Who knows He might just be victorious In such importance As to be more than that of guns and bombs

I too often rewrite pieces. This is well expressed.
