NOT A REAL WAR
© 2012 Robert Cavill

His mother and brother said 'Johnny ... Don't go'!

The Bar girls of 'Vunger's' said ... 'Yu Baby San! No'!

Then dripping black darkness, his mates standing by;

There was a dying. In silence ... the eye's asking why?



Just nineteen short summers ... or ... perhaps a little more,

But what's to be said, it was ... Uh, not a real war;

Sweet Johnny sleep ... it is best you don't know.

Happy was the land ... that needed no heroes.
