SOME WHO NEVER DIED

Those remembered were the known,
The others they have gone,
we remember because some got home,
when the fighting was all done.
Few sacrificed the lives they lost;
most lives were sacrificed
by the powers-that-be the measured cost,
the calculated price!
As boys they went as boys they died,
As men the most came back,
As those at home waiting cried,
Though some of love did lack
… and some who never died,
should have reapplied!
