IN MY DADDY’S DAY

In my daddy’s day
He went off to war
So very young
It was a war you
Had to fight
Objections
Conscientious
Or otherwise

So his blasting
Out of high school
At tender age
Had only one
Destination –
South Pacific
Headquarters
For the holiest of wars
Where the sun
Beat down all day
Like midday

In my daddy’s day
He went off to war
So very young
