Why Die - Poem by Francis Duggan

Why die for your Country since your Country of you not aware
And your Country can't feel or don't have power to care
If for it the ultimate sacrifice you did make
Your Country for you will not weep at your wake.

Why die for your God or for your God others kill
Since your God does not wish you to wish on others ill
In Moses fifth Commandment there is nothing that say
That to kill in War for your God is okay.

Why die or kill for your Nation's flag that does hardly make sense
Since one should fight in their own or their loved ones defence
Far too many people in wars have fought and have died
For God or for Land or for National pride.

Why die for a flag or for God or for Land
Since you will not be there when the citizens band
Will play on the streets of your beloved Hometown
For to honour your bravery and your posthumous renown.
