|Parent and Child|
|The concern of mothers and fathers|
for sons and daughters at war,
is something some of the population
seems to have little compassion for.
"They're slow to send their heart's delight
to defend the homeland's shores?
Don't they know their child couldn't fight
for any more noble a cause?"
"It is my country, right or wrong,"
comes the proud, exultant cry.
"How can they deny their precious
child this glorious chance to die?"
