Every War Needs Some Warriors

Every war needs its soldiers,
Ones that will do or die
Preferably 'do', for useless in war
is a body that can no longer kill.

Every war needs mercenaries
That keep compassion at bay
When they pull the trigger on those
Who may not have any say.

Every war needs a bunch of warring slaves,
Who deny the conscience in their souls
Who know only the commands of 'No' and 'Yes'
Who when told to kill - kill; when told to die - die.

But every war also needs its warriors,
Who don't kill but are ever ready to die,
Waging war on war, they are the warriors of peace
The voice of compassion, the true revolutionaries
...the heroes who truly will never die.
