soldiers' bones
blood from a stone
the battles lost
the wars go on

children march
with little toy guns
fall down and cry
get up again

where is mommy?
what place is this now
where veterans fear
to make a move?

the dead give orders
positions must hold
til the children
come to play

then by the numbers
we will love them to death
make them our heroes
put them to bed and bye

mommy knows
she's lived through the days
her little soldiers
rested in peace

she puts down dinner
then marches out
to paddle some asses
pick up all the toys
