My Son, The Drummer Boy - Poem by Jeff Fleischer My son, the drummer boy. Barely thirteen, will march off To this civil war. I hope and pray I will see him again on earth Before I see him in heaven. His father is dead. His brothers are lost. There will be no man of the house left. His sisters and I fear for his life. The enemy cares not if They cause me another reason to grieve. I told my son, the drummer boy, That the most important thing of all To remember is to keep your mother's And sisters' love in your heart.

Can you feel for me? It was my daughter and her child Torn away from my heart by a man whose passions went wild. Does he care that I will never see them anymore? He just ignored their cries when they hit the floor. You can not imagine the painful thoughts that leaped through my mind. When I realized that bloodstained kin was all I would find. How could someone so very unstable Have once been a soul seated at G-d's table. G-d, one thing I must ask: Please punish the evildoer and take him to task. G-d give me strength so I will quit looking for the reason That my Mary and my Troy are not alive to see another season.
