    Role model
    By Froggy

    My son, have you not heard a word I said?
    You want to join, you say, to go and fight.
    I do not wish, my boy, to see you dead.
    I'd stop you, son, were it within my might.

    But father, chose I now to stay at home,
    And waited here for news of soldiers lost
    Wouldn't I be guilty of the death of some?
    To save just one, I'd gladly pay the cost.

    I've been to war, my child, I've seen it all.
    No medal nor honor were worth the price.
    I lost my dearest friends, I saw them fall.
    they're dead and gone now, yet were honored twice.

    I know what you fought for father, or whom.
    For us, you fought, you won, beat certain doom.
