The fighting man

In his armour of knowledge, brains and mind He goes off to the bloodless wars fought with salient words Infantry, his words Artillery, the wits Sarcasm, the sabre Bombast, the cannon Diplomatic innuendoes philosophical crescendos are not mere statements but victory bringing elements He fights on and faints not The fighting man strives on for himself, family and nation for his ideals, morals and God Who knows, He may just win a victory Maybe more important Than any victory of guns and bombs
