Tribute to the Army


All assemble at once
Standing together in teams
Pledging to fight against all odds
They shout out in chorus
And disperse to get ready for the moment
 

The clock strikes; a minute later, 
Gun shots, explosions are heard  
Smoke engulfs the sky to grey 
Distress and panic felt and seen around 
But the team courageously marches ahead 
Next day, the front headlines states 
Bravo team,well done;danger conquered, safety is intact 
Two days later, they are forgotten 
But the team do their duty as usual 
As others are fast asleep  
Letters and distant calls from family is the only acknowledgement they receiveThe odds are many, lack of support is one 
Revered by others on the day which gave them their freedom.
