ODE TO THE MIGHTY MAN

Oh hail the mighty warriors
Who pride themselves on being strong
And fight their battles with affirm.
Courage is their battle cry,
Their banners waving high.
Oh the glory of it all,
Young brave men who stand
And answer a warrior’s call.
But if the enemy advances,
Our brave men now pinned down,
What happens to their courage then?
What happens when we lose these men?
What happens when their courage wanes?
We lose our men again.
