WARS ARE NOT FOUGHT BY DEAD MEN

Wars are not fought by dead men
so do your best to survive,
and those who stick their heads up
are not the ones left alive.
Gung Ho is very good in movies,
but in War it’s a good way to die,
for a fool doesn’t last in battle,
nor do those who on him rely.
Just be there for the man beside you,
by keeping yourself alert,
you can kiss his ass if you want to,
but with a bullet you cannot flirt.
in harm’s way remember you need to
do your best to avoid getting hurt.
