It Does Seem

For love of the national flag and patriotic pride
By far too many young men in wars have died
They did not live on for to grow old and gray
For their patriotism and bravery with their lives they did pay
Life is often short for some who live without fear
Though the last post the dead heroes never do hear
And sadly to say in every war parade
In the patriotic and impressionable young future dead heroes are made
I have seen old soldiers their eyes full of tears
For young comrades of war deceased for many years
Even victory in war does come at a huge cost
Yet lessons of wars never learned though many lives have been lost
In war zones of the World people are dying every day
And that one war leads to another it does seem this way.
