Colin F. Jones

I DID MY DUTY

I don’t want thanks,
I fought not for you;
I was just a soldier,
With a job to do.
No flag, no god,
No sacrificial trends,
Just roads to plod,
With a troop of friends.
No thoughts of glory,
No thoughts of fame,
No bullshit story,
Nothing to claim.
I did my duty,
For love not gain.
