Dont die for them

We all die for nations and religions

That would never die for us

We sacrifice our life for leaders

Who hide way safe at the back

We die for greed and territory

In stupid futile political and religious wars

We die at their behest in wars without a cause

Patriotism and being a hero is all a lying game

It’s all just an enticement to get you in the game

And as a veteran see how you are treated by the state

And you will realise soon enough

That your endeavours were a waste

Because they’ll leave with ptsd, poverty and disability

While they’re sitting in their ivory towers that they built on greed

And on the pile of bloodsoaked

Young men’s piled up bodies.
