The Soldier Fights

the soldier fights for the hippys rights to protest against that soldier
the soldier fights for the politions rights to send that soldier to war
the soldier fights for buisness mans rights to make money
the soldier fights for the policemans rights to arrest that soldier
the soldier fights for school kids right to know about past soldiers
the soldier fights to so that you may all sleep at night
the soldier fights for religion so that you may all belive what you wish
And yet the soldier fights on
the soldier fights for his flag, for his country, for his life

@Matthew Gill i agree
very good ive been marine for about 3 yrs now and i agree completely with this poem
i agree with that cuz soldiers are dying and ppl r crying every where i wish there waz no war i wish 4 world peace but it to big of a wish not even god can grant it and im only 13
As a person with a passion for America and what She stands for, I strongly agree with this poem. The part with 'the soldier fights for the hippys rights to protest against that soldier' seems to refer to the Vietnam protests. It is very moving, passionate and thoughtful. I absolutely love your poem and your word usage. You are a very good poet/writer =D
as a soldier i would like to say a good poem and also true however i do not agree with a comment made saying we do not want to be overseas serving because its not true we enjoy our work and enjoy the opportunity to carry out our roles on deployments overseas
