GENERALS

One man must plan and the other must go,
Each needs the other to operate you know,
While Macarthur’s are talkers and self centred men,
Who send thousands to slaughter at the stroke of the pen,
They are needed if battles by soldiers are won,
And praised for the victory when ‘tis over and done.
Generals are nothing, like Napoleon and greed,
They use all the soldiers that they can to succeed,
And they really don’t care how many are lost,
‘Tis the families of soldiers who count up the cost
When the battle smoke clears the general goes home,
Telling all the slave media that he did it alone,
And while all the widows and mothers do mourn,
Another General to someone for tomorrow is born.
