WHAT FOR…?

What did your daddy die for son,
He was only twenty-five,
He was a vital part of the war we won,
But he’s no longer still alive.
His widow is sad she’s missing him,
There is nothing left for her,
And you’re in trouble; his closest kin,
Doing time in the local stir.
What did your daddy do for you,
Killing folk in senseless wars,
While you into a criminal grew,
Behind the clang of steel doors?
What did your daddy die for son,
His own happiness or for yours?
