Young man soldier you have been tricked
Pulled blindly into this bloody conflict
Your mind plays games of judgment
As you stand upon the desert sands still and poignant
As the sky is blackened with remorseless demons
Young man soldier reflects on home and loved ones
As you enter and tread carefully towards the battlefield
Your hands washed with blood and your heart concealed
Will you ever learn to stop the fight
Too late the aftermath, the devastated bombsite
Of blood and limbs and dead man's skin
That life is so cheap, we trade-in to win
Soldier know that these are your brothers in trouble
That lay weeping and broken beneath the rubble
The desert sand will blow and drift, burn your eyes
Remember the killing of one another God despise
Reflect - how you neglected to respect life and love
As you dig the grave encircled by the mourning dove
We pray for your safe return
And hope that one day you will learn.
Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing.
Where have all the flowers gone long time ago.
Where have all the flowers gone
Young girls picked them everyone.
When will they ever learn .......

On thy grave the rain shall fall from the eyes of a mighty nation! ~Thomas William
Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored. ~Daniel Webster
With the tears a Land hath shedTheir graves should ever be green.~Thomas Bailey Aldrich
