Soldier Blue 2

Pulled your big file
2C why UR loved
Soldier Blue
First 2 answer, is men

Men say you're a man
And an XL Grunt
Soldier Blue
What more is there?

There are women
Out in front for
Soldier Blue
Needing to say

Say what a man
Like you can be
Soldier Blue
Part of a good crew

Crew chums, we fake
You never do
Soldier Blue
You write poems

Poems for us though
You don't know us
Soldier Blue
Your brain does compute

Compute? we don't do
Grasp our minds? you?
Soldier Blue
But you'll never rest

Rest until we are done
Truly loved, sweetly by
Soldier Blue
You worship sport, wow!

Wow! nor afraid of dark
Or care about our ageing
Soldier Blue
Other reasons we love you

You are always ready
For anything complex
Soldier Blue
You will fix anything

Anything with or without
The right tools for you
Soldier Blue
You don't wear high heels

Heels, you save us from
Nor afraid to go bald RU?
Soldier Blue
Not afraid to say your mind

Mind? you love your big Hemi
As we dearly love our jewelry
Soldier Blue
You speak too little, or too much

Much of you, you do try hard to hide
Unafraid of mice or creepy crawlies RU
Soldier Blue
Children silence, whilst Babes imobilise you

You try night and day to be the best of the best
At doing, sports, soldiering n loving true us women
Soldier Blue
Adrenaline rushes for you are a joy and dream to catch

Catch'n you broken is fine so we can happily mother you
Because you get tender and cry, not talk much, but then be
Soldier Blue
Then you do so love your mother, and remind us of our father

Father of our children that you should become and need us always
You are have a great strong arm to hold to in alleys, or times of stress
Soldier Blue
And like this poem you keep getting bigger, that is why we love you. Soldier Blue.


Dedicated to a friend who had major surgery after the Falkland's war and soldiers everywhere who give so much more than most can imagine.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
