LIKE YOU AND I, YOU KNOW

Pray for, but do not criticise the foe,
They are but folk like you and I you know,
Who live by law and the powers that be,
So really they’re the same as you and me.
They go to work doing as they are told,
Some are gentle some are hard and bold,
Most have wives, children; husbands too,
And most do things as you and I must do.
They laugh and cry and feel joy and pain,
Love and hate and like you and I complain,
About the prices of their food and fuel,
About the summer heat and the winter cool.
Please pray for them in their current plight,
And honour them for their noble fight.
