UNDYING TRUST

The people are the people they elect,
Thus some of their own nation must reject,
Who failed to mount their modal of the law,
Which may or may not contemplate a war.
Yet look! All faith in the leader must be sworn,
That while he rules they eat his brand of corn.
Or yet deplete the trust that must be strong,
To overcome what people deem as wrong.
For what determines law when men are free,
Is the nation’s people who of most agree
To trust their leaders to lead them under God,
To defend with honour their homeland’s sacred sod.
That it be war to ensure this noble end
Means undying trust goes with the troops we send.
