They died today,


Those seven men,


Proud soldiers


But they died.



Their mission was


A risky one


That all knew


Must be done.



Headlong they flew


Into the void


That fate


Prepared for them.



Yet had they time


To think of it,


The same they


Would have done.



A soldier whose


A good one


Asks not


The reason why.



He does his job


No matter what,


Well knowing


He may die.



A soldier is


A mortal man,


And mortals


All must die.



Itís cause for wonder


That they knew,


Yet looked death


In the eye.



But these were soldiers


Every one,
And thatís
The reason why.
