Defenders - Poem by Daniel Bernard Kelleher

We have come to take for granted
The wars around the globe
Where there our uniform soldiers
Men and women lose their lives

They fight the unknown enemy
Following orders as trained to do
No matter if the cause was right
No matter if it was wrong

Most will return home
When their tour of duty ends
Hugging kissing loved ones
Thanking God they survived

The soldiers who do not make it
Are considered casualties of war
They died not for their country
But in someone else's war

Our soldiers were sent out there
To protect people under threat
But we took it all for granted
Which is sad but very true
