Shot at Dawn

By 26th November 2011December 9th, 2019No Comments

Take the “Coward” from this place
Another boy goes to waste
Tie him to a well fixed post
I suppose his mother loved him most
Recruit a squad from his platoon
Home for Christmas, boom, boom, boom
Not to wound, aim to kill
With his pals just until
SHOT AT DAWN
The boy lays still
