Sorry for some blunders in this one. Realistic and in your face picture of what war is, from
WW1, and the experience of an Australian solider.. An anti war song, and very sobering.

I sure wish we would finally look at the uselessness of war and come to realize there has to be a better way. This is a sad song that I believe takes some courage to present here given the willingness of some to believe and follow the failed policies that keep us so mercilessly involved in multiple places at once. Sorry about the soap box, longjohn. I agree with every word in this song. Oh, and you did a great job on it. ~ Dave ~
