Fleas

Dedicated, with greatest respect, to all our serving combatants, all the casualities both dead and surviving, all their loved ones, and all veterans from the beginning of time


They took away his body armour
and he got killed by shot,
for the serving soldier
just one ending of the plot.

There's no dignity on any front line
nor any comfort for those left behind,
but the antics of politicos
and their face saving rites;
members of parliament??  
Master parasites!!

The successful politician
turns to their own good
the fighting to the last drop
of someone else's blood,
takes all they have to give
but Fleas only suck to live...........................
