Soldier Straits

Wandering And Loafing thither-stunned I knew,
Scorching sweat-and a grim creature view,
Aye troubled and loaded vista of misery,
Swirling with abjectness seeming weary,

Nor they stand upright neither they sit calm,
Where they where, never in placid nay in ominous realm,
Prepare for prepare on this abominable flame of war,
They freaked out through futile power,

Hence ‘tis a royal road through eke’ out but volatile,
Ye- grudgingly yet’ a way but vile,
What he must –must he be, but far and away,
Gibbet solemnly- but utter mere no word-to say,

Maunder surreal-y even in the day-and night watch,
Discern–castles in air while-lying on a patch,

Fair a mere simpleton creature, when dies,
Forgot at-once posthumously with no suspiration and sighs,
No well being and vivification where he dwelt and grew,
Aye beneath the troubled shallow’y spring under the yoke of fo,

Regime demand integrity, excelence and professionalism,
They say trinquality, solace, and humanism,
Tongue introverted, knees knocked, head stood,
Muster out as OAP, at hoar, man-made-wood.

To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
