Dedicated to the Infantryman

his shoulders ache
his arms are sore
his legs are hurting
his feet are wet
his back is tired
his sides are worn
his pack so heavy

he can hardly walk
he is never clean
he is always hungry
he is so tired
he can't carry enough
he can't kill enough
he can't pray enough

he sleeps no more
God bless his soul
he gave so much
he was a GRUNT
