They Lie

 They send us off to die.

Blood and tears we cry.

In the heat of battle we live.

Our sweat and life we give.

Bang beats the drum.

A war never won.

Vanity and pride.

The leaders hide.

Why should this be?

Indeed the name of the free?

No, not in my name.

This is not a game.

They send us off to die, we shall not go!

For they lie!
