In the line of duty

This is a poem i write just after my brother left home to join the army, just 5 months after he left school.

In the line of duty

In wars, at least bullets bounce back,
Soldiers gather on a hill that's black,
Troops on guard with explosives in toe,
Never know when the next bomb will blow.

Bullet proof helments and camoflage gear,
When one soldier dies, the rest live in fear,
Sent to fight for their country, and their rights,
Bloodied bodies are scattered like the stars at night.

Big boots on their feet, and guns in hands,
Off to kill the enemy their sergent commands,
Photos of family members tucked inside their pockets,
One last goodbye, pictures in golden lockets.

Fighting the enemy, and stormy seas,
A sign of hope in the swift gentle breeze,
In the line of duty, you'll make us proud,
And we'll be waiting for you, in the crowd.  

Vicki Wroe, 17 (c)
