We are the pawns of polititions, our conscience has no voice. We go where we are ordered, our duty, not our choice. We are part of the 'make do' Army, using kit not fit for task. Where else can we make savings? is all the MP's ask. We serve because we want to, it's what we signed up for. With MOD cutbacks, there's less to do much more. So we have more tours of duty, and time at home gets less and less. Is it so surprising so many lives are filled with stress? Through the TV and the Internet, Joe Public see's what we're about. But this is just a 'snapshot' Our life-day in, day out. And support seems sometimes lacking, from the comments and the quotes. It's not to us, to vent your anger. But to those who chased your votes. Yet, when we are tired and dusty and our souls are in the sand. A shoebox and a letter shows there's some that understand. Yes to these people we're not just a Goverment slave They will support and remember us for all that we gave.
