Soldiers – Day XX – NaPoWriMo 2014

Forward we march
Through shit and mud and sludge
Standing strong in the wind
Refusing to budge

We wave our flag high
With vim and vigour and pride
Let them stare, let them pry
We’ve nothing to hide

We’ll tackle every obstacle
Climb the mountains high
For ours is not to question
Ours is to do and die

Forward, always forward
Never waver nor stray
Forward, always forward
No matter what may

Our orders we take
And we follow them with love
We tow the line and listen
To every word from above

For we are soldiers
My few men and I
And ours is not to question
Ours is but to do and die

We merry few, we men of youth
We stomp and stir and storm
With nothing but out ideals
To keep us dry and warm

Through gale storms and pouring rain
Onwards we go
Always to our goals
Always so

We’ll do it till it’s done
And the end it seems is nigh
Oh ours is not to question
Ours is but to do and die

(Inspired, in spirit, by “The Charge of the Light Brigade” by Alfred Lord Tennyson)
