Marching Men


Bill Truax

Marching men
In lock step
To the pulse
Of hearts
Beating no more
Life as it was
And death

Battles won
Battles lost
Care not the
Marching men
In lock step
In death
To a drum
Beating no more
Returning no more

What say you
Marching men
In lock step
Through eternity
What value lost
What value gained
Lost in life
Gained in death
