Drink young soldier

Drink young soldier.
Drink to those who lead you.
Drink to drown out all the cries
of those who didn’t need you.

Drink to empty promises.
Drink to understand.
How one can become an animal.
How one can kill a man.

Drink to all the tortured
and those who had no trial.
Drink to block out memories
and replace them with denial.

Drink to children killed
who never threatened yours.
Drink to try to justify
a fabricated cause.

Drink because you didn’t know
they were innocent civilians.
Drink to try and cloak yourself
as just one in a million.

Drink young soldier.
Drink to those who lead you.
Drink to drown out all the cries
of those who didn’t need you.
