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.
