DEAD SOLDIES

We see a glimpse on the telly as they pass

Just a quick glimpse on the telly

As they pass from our thoughts

Another number on the list growing longer

As our hearts become harder

To the tears of the Mother’s never seen

Just a glimpse on the telly as our life goes on

 

Changing hearts and minds in what the politicians say

But can changing hearts and minds over there

Be changing hearts and minds over here?

 

Just a glimpse on the telly is not enough

To show our gratitude and horror of life taken.
