THE GRAVE

Who are you mister:
Did you live your life well
Before they sent you to war,
Before they sent you to hell?
Who are you mister,
Lying there in the grave:
Were you proud of your corps
Were you noble and brave?
Who were you mister,
Were you a young man like me?
Did you have a brother and sister
Who were happy and free?
Whoever you were as a soldier you died,
Never forgotten – remembered with pride
