Off to War

Off to war he speeds, jolly
his generation's big chance
to defeat the evil enemy
   to destroy
   his cities
   his farmlands
      to take prisoners
      to gloat, boast and brag
to prove that his side is surely in the right --
yet, strangely enough, his evil enemy looks exactly like him
