Murder Under God


Onward Christian soldiers

Marching off to war

 

You were created to solve

Societies ills

But now you got to kill

Like you never killed before

 

We will tell you who

to despatch and why

Why in gOds will

it’s justified

to ignore your heart

accept the lies

 

Celebrate this day?

 

Your innocence dies!

 

Onward Christian soldiers

Marching off to war

You have never been corrupted

by us like this before

  1. Your ability to capture the hypocrisy of war in such a simple yet direct way makes this a very powerful poem! Well done!
