Anthem for the Dogs of War
This is life for me, to some others.
While I see grown men cry.
I’ve heard other’s say this is what nightmare’s are made of.
The blood and carnage of my brothers I wear like badges,
I’m here to do a job.
I here securing freedom and safety, for my loved one’s back home.
They say we are doing this for peace.
War, for peace.
Doesn’t make much sense to me.
Thus the Anthem for the Dogs of War, that’s what this is.
This, and the ringing from the explosions,
And the screams of my platoon. Those screams that I hear in my sleep.
I guess they got it right,
It is hard to tell this from the things in my sleep.
Maybe right now, I’m sleeping.
And I’ll wake up at home. Without the blood and gore, the horror and terror.
But I know better.
The Anthem for the Dogs of War.
And I’m just a puppy running around scared.
