Every day you lead your men
into the danger, heat and storm
waiting, never knowing if you will call
shall I see you again in your uniform
so far away, in a senseless war
you witness all the wretched cruelty
special mission in a danger zone
by your stripes, you honour a tour of duty
who knows when it will end
or why it all began
relieved when you pop up each day
and call from Afghanistan…
