A Soldier's Song

A Soldier's Song

A Poem by Threads

Tipper, tapper 
Off we go, to afar 
Stimmer, stammer 
Then we go, to a war 

Take me home 
oh maiden fair 
Take me far 
away from here

A grunt and pant 
the soldier's song 
and through a rant 
It still will pang  

A step in drone away from home 
To a goal I still don't know 
That's afoul 

Take me home 
oh maiden fair 
Take me far 
away from here

I am done 
(with this war 
Let them come 
(I am set ashore 

I found my maiden away from here 
She sat in wonder of people there 
She knows not yet for neither do I 
But I'm willing to bet we're caught by 
A set of eyes
