Some soldiers died today,
Though no one gave a care.
For they were Cold War warriors,
No medals hanging there.
A cheap and worthless badge,
Was all they had to show.
They all volunteered to serve,
But no one would ever know.
Ready to defend this land,
In times of peace or strife.
Without exception they all stood,
Though it might mean their life.
They are daily disrespected,
By those they signed to serve.
When they asked for recognition,
They were told they “had a nerve”.
But the greatest disrespect,
>From those they served alongside
Those who wear a gong or two,
And yet their service do deride.
