Shirley Woods

Rookie (15/2/67 / Liverpool)

A Shiny Medal

Will he see the sun for another day
Or will they carry his body away
In pieces, or downed by a single sniper shot.
He loves this life but hope he has not.

Too many have fallen by his side
Too many that joined out of a sense of pride.
He feels the jitters, he feels the nerves
But he carries on faithful to the country he serves.
