Bastion Boys by Rick Haynes

 

We saw a message about the boys away.

How long to go, how long to stay.

With the dust and the heat,

and the boot sore feet.

Of the longing to be home again.

 

We saw the need of a comfort or two.

From a reading book to a sweet to chew.

And thought of the need,

of the warrior creed.

And the longing to be home again.

 

So here we send to the boys away.

Some small comforts for their day.

On that foreign sand,

in that hellish land.

Of the longing to be home again.

 

So we pray to god and wish you well.

In that place you know, that living hell.

With knee unbowed,

it makes us proud.

And the longing to be home again.
