WW2

We were ordered by military law  
 
To elope, even before our boat had hit the shore  
 
The bullets knocked us about, thats for sure  
 
Dead cobbers scattered adrift, from the infantrys 1st corp  
 
Now some mates from my own platoon, 1, 2, 3 now 4  
 
Nobody should ever have to witness such gore  
 
Did not matter if you were rich or poor  
 
You were just a target, in this almighty war  
 
If the politicians demanded, they would easily send more  
 
Finally, the west encircled the mad beast, with a rambunctious roar  
 
But they let the Reds go forth, who savaged all the women, like a wild boar  
 
What was the main aim and what was the true meaning, deep down at its core, for this unholy friggin’ war?
