Its the Soldier

Poem I found

It's the Soldier by Father D.E. O'Brien, USMC

It's the soldier, not the reporter,

Who has given us freedom of the press.

It's the soldier, not the poet,

Who has given us freedom of speech.

It's the soldier, not the campus organizer,

Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It's the soldier, not the lawyer,

Who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It's the soldier who salutes the flag, Serves under the flag, And whose coffin is draped by the flag,

Who gives the protester the right to burn the flag.

And did Father O'Brian pass his GCSE by submitting this then?
No, they don’t have GCSEs in the US :wink:

Is that cos the septics are too thick to pass them?
Errrr…no, they have a different education system to ourselves and don’t have GCSEs.

Is “cos” even a word in English??
How did you get on with your GCSEs? :D

No bitching. No mention of alcohol. No pursuit of fat women. Are you sure this is really about soldiers?
