Tears of War Sounding Off

My ears are flooded with roaring sounds-
Ammunition rounds,missile,and stiff bodies-
Pounding the ground-
My ears are flooded with roaring sounds-
Innocent found,caught in cross-fire-
Notify relatives by the pounds-
My ears are flooded with roaring sounds-
Piercing mounds of cries within wombs-
Over crowed operating rooms-
My ears are flooded with roaring sounds-
Soldiers found on both sides taken down-
Forward all calls we can't afford to accept-
Any now-
We are still at war-

US. Soldiers

Thanks is such a petty word
When measured to your worth
For in my eyes you are grand
More precious and useful on
This earth then beneath it
You risk your lives
So, That we might survive
US. Soldiers I salute you
