The Soldier Fights Poem by katie

The Soldier Fights

Rating: 4.1

the soldier fights for the hippys rights to protest against that soldier
the soldier fights for the politions rights to send that soldier to war
the soldier fights for buisness mans rights to make money
the soldier fights for the policemans rights to arrest that soldier
the soldier fights for school kids right to know about past soldiers
the soldier fights to so that you may all sleep at night
the soldier fights for religion so that you may all belive what you wish
And yet the soldier fights on
the soldier fights for his flag, for his country, for his life

very few thing in that poem are true.the soldiers do not want to go overseas. they try to fight AGAINST the prime ministers rights to send them to war.They will of course fight to prevent getting arrested. they do not want the hippies to protest against them they try to stop that.Katie I like the poem and all but please, try to do a little more studying before you write another soldier poem! sorry if i sounded mean it's just I care alot about this kind of stuff, my daddy's out in Afghanistan right now, and I almost lost my husband when he was in Iraq! LUV YALL!

I think you've missed the point of the poem. Its that soldiers fight for eveyone's rights, whether they like them or what they are doing, and that people should never forget that. I'm pretty sure soldiers don't fight against being sent to war, because if so they're in the wrong jobs, you know the risks when you sign on the dotted line. Reaserch, I live it love! But I do wish your father a safe return from the stan and am sorry to hear about your husbands close shave, I know what its like to loose people that way. All the best.

as a soldier i would like to say a good poem and also true however i do not agree with a comment made saying we do not want to be overseas serving because its not true we enjoy our work and enjoy the opportunity to carry out our roles on deployments overseas
