Damn War - Poem by Charles Hancock

Damn war drags on
Our soldiers are gone
A young father is dying
Never to see a new dawn

A broken wife is left crying
The government is lying
Old men know the difference
Industry keeps on supplying

A child sits in sweet ignorance
Waiting on Daddy's entrance
Parents lost their pride and joy
Killed stopping the menace

Always be their little boy
He volunteered to deploy
Taps, flag, and purple heart
Buried with his son's favorite toy
