The Commander by Michael Waite


If the battlefield is empty and the ground is red,
The remains of my men are lying dead,
I stand and stare at the battle lost without a care,
The enemy resides in a bunker watching my stare of defeat,
without a whisper they plan their retreat,
to a land where they grew up and walked with the soft steps of their feet,
and one day soon, in morning and night,
they’ll remember their enemy and the day they had to fight,
for “only the dead have seen the end of war”,
and one day soon well fight another battle maybe two maybe more.
