Soldiers Kill, for That Is Their Profession
|Soldiers kill, for that is their
Or die, for those are soldiers that they face.
Let us honor, then, the unmarked grace
Death bestows on those in its possession.
If the cause is just, soldiers will
Embody what the nation holds most dear,
Rendering our peril in their fear,
Serving our survival when they kill.
