Truth About War

Fearless men and women
Go out, their lives, they’ve given.
Bullets constantly whizzing by
One-by-one I hear them cry
Planes are flying overhead
People are lying here, dead
Gift baskets, supplies, are all sent away
They are given to solders another day
People are screaming up ahead
Don’t bother looking, they’re probably dead
When the time comes they are sent home
Some families happy, some alone
We need to stop this madness
It’s all just pointless!
People fighting other places
Never to see smiling faces
Days pass by, families wonder
If their solders are with the thunder
Many people die for us
Some even go without a fuss
These people, true and brave they stay
Their wills are never blown away
They tell the troops to stay calm
But forever, their souls will march on.

I really like the meaning, some of the rhyming seemed a little forced, like the last two lines the words  Calm and on.  Personally I wasn't thrilled with that, however you still get 5/5! :)
