'The battle won yet heavy lies

My heart this night to my surprise;

The weeping from the battlefield

Does not abate does never yield

A sigh of hope a moment's peace

In war exists there no release

From loss and pain quixotic be

This prayer for calm upon our sea;

But fight we do and in our hands

Our fate our rights our just demands;

But all this has a heavy price

I say not once not twice but thrice

'Hurrah' for those who march to die

And never question how or why.'

A clever write Al. Though I don't march to die, I won't question it how and why either. When it's time for me to go, I'll try to say goodbye with an smile...:) ~Dean
