The Tomb of the Unknown


Four unknowns are lying here
Four men with unknown names
These men sleep unending slumber
Lost in brutal games

Four wars these men have come from
Four places far away
But these four can rest knowing
They did not die in vain

These men served their country
Allowing others to survive
Fighting with utmost valor
These men gave their lives

They should not be forgotten
You should thank them for your life
For they helped you live in peace
As they met their own demise
