Soldiers

A loud bugle call to rouse our spirits 

Only some answered though all could hear it 

Left family and homes to take up arms

Knowing full well of the various harms 

So full of honor and courage and strength

Bound bodies and hearts for the nations gain

And bugles turned to bullets in battle 

Chains of death and war began to rattle 

We bared the burden of our friends falling 

And come to salute them where they’re resting 

And proudly we stood, shoulder to shoulder 

With honor we served, all of us soldiers
