Falklands 82

You feel bad , so you have a little drink .

Another makes you feel better .

Several more makes you feel great .

The devil’s the bar - man

Hell’s today , purgatory ‘s tomorrow

Gray steel , black nights

The stars remain the same .

Eight thousand miles away ,

They lie in their beds .

Dreams forgotten , ambition’s

unfulfilled .

Integrity , honor , and freedom .

Politicians words ,

For a soldier’s trade is

Death .

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Sometimes I feel that the goverment let us down.
