So Many For The Flag

So many for the flag of their Country in battles have died
In the war zones of death in Countries Worldwide
But when the Last Post is played for the one who died brave
The young soldier does not hear in the deep dark depths of the grave
For to love your Country for it you do not have to die
Since love of Country by dying for it is based on a lie
Love of Country to the living can only belong
And those who will tell you differently have got it wrong
And though they died for their Country and for this hero worship is their due
That the dead cannot love their Country happens to be true
And though much of deceased war heroes is written and said
And the nationalists and patriots honor the war dead
For to love your Country for it you do not have to die
And those who do tell you differently believe their own lie.
