The death of liberty

By Anton

A soldier lies under a foreign sky
While back at home a politician on the right
Proclaims ‘for there country they did die’
The soldiers death becomes another banner under which to fight

The shovel of counter terrorism piles dirt upon the box
The nation’s flag covers the bone
As the war propaganda secretly mocks
Liberty is engraved on the stone
