Soldier's Sonnet

I’m back home from the field I have fought on  		
Returned to sender “into Brize Norton”.			
Think not The Hero, that’s not where I’m at			
Don’t fight for country, I’m no patriot				
For my child, my family, all of my friends			
For people I love let deeds meet the ends.			
But remember when you ask me to kill			
It’s at your command these deaths I fulfill.			
When I signed on to serve Queen & country			
Employed and fulfilled I wanted to be				
Not glory, excitement, sport or travel				
Certainly not my life to unravel
So I fought, I killed; I did as you said.				
It matters not now; no now that I am dead.
