"SOLDIER'S VIEW"
by Mac McAnear
(Member, Area XI - Div. 4)
(Published with Permission of the Author)

          We know how to die if called upon
          For flag, country and folks back home
          Who feel so proud though scared half to death!

          There’s nothing in the world we’d rather do
          Than put ourselves in plainest view
          Aware this might be our final breath!

          For the enemy bent on killing us
          Would without the slightest fuss
          Doing so before we get to him!

          This is it, why we trained so hard
          Learned to use every yard
          Keeping our wits to the bitter end!

          Some will die, we know that much
          We’ll miss them a lot, every touch
          Something we just have to swallow.

          We learn early to accept such a thing
          Inevitable this final sting
          But no use to whine or in self-pity wallow!
