ANOTHER DAY

Don’t pity the foe – just kill him,
for he was born to die,
Else you will be killed by him,
while you are trying to work out why.
The fear you feel is a warning
that it is danger that you face.
Use it to inspire your storming
lest your cringing brings disgrace.
Mark where the heroes dying
have fallen before the foe;
go where you can keep on trying
where dead heroes cannot go,
For your duty is survival
to fight another day you know.
