Moving On To Die No More - Poem by Richard Jarboe

We're moving on to die no more,
Eyes upon that distant shore,
Righteous as we march to war
Moving on to die no more.

Each a victim of loyalty,
Each a victim of royalty,
We do what must be done,
In the fog of bayonet and gun,
Moving on to die no more.

When the smoke clears there's a remainder
Reorganized by the commander,
We pay the toll, we play our role,
And grass grows over our soul,
Movin' on to die no more.
