Hubb Marches To The Battlefront - Poem by King Midas

When the rich wage war
it's the poor man who dies
Just a lonely boy looking for
A second chance at life

He straps on the boots
and loads up his gun
He marches out proud
As his country's son

He raises his fist
And joins the great fight
He's ready to do all for a love
A love that'll be his demise

He shoots 'em in the scores
They can't seem to touch him
But around him his brethren lay
Not able to obstruct them

He sees the numbers fall down so swift
His heart starts a double kick beat
A rump pum pum pum, As the day is almost done
As the brave soldier stands to his feet

He yells 'Try to take me bastards! '
'I'm willing to fight you all to serve my lady'
He wouldn't let his country down
But his country did betray'm

He fell down that day
A massive fire through the blades of chest
He layed down for a rich man's plan
But it meant for him some rest

Since he was a boy
This young man felt defeated
He watched mother abuse her drugs
And with Father he was mistreated

A slap across the face
Just to let him know he failed
And when he showed he could stand out
His dad was not one to swell

With pride, he made his son ashamed
In all he had become
His only resort was with a black breathed angel
And a tipped over bottle of rum

He scraped and scratched, and through it all
He made it out alive
But now he had no options to make things better
Unless if he risked his life

And so the boy who fought so hard
To escape treacherous insecurity
Had made a noble yet sorrowful decision
To try to restore purity

In the hearts of the misers
And the rulers of the world
Who stomp out and break young mens wills
If just for power more

But the young man layed down that day
A life given for the cause
To give other young desperate men hope
That someday they can restore law

They could blossom into grace
Into a world of splendor
All because a young soldier died
A man who had never surrendered
