You celebrate one who died for us,
Why not for soldiers who do the same.
Each event may cause a great deal of fuss,
Though one does so with questionable shame.
Did not King David slay his powerful foe
When he was just a pleasant wee lad?
He was a believer in your God you know;
Why was he not considered bad?
It seems to me the Rose will grow,
And the bullock will grow long horns,
Because that’s the way the rivers flow,
And the reason there are storms.
Let us not condemn those who go,
Because it’s time to use their horns
