The good soldier

When they invaded our shores
 they died without missing
 the earth and hearth of the fatherland Whoever war annihilated
 never saw his children never received last rites and now lies exposed on foreign land feeding birds of prey The great strategist
 for what he hates most 
kills what he loves most At home woe doesn't change
 for those who stay
 Wife without husband
 orphaned of her son 
at home 
gave birth for nothing 
In the grave no one
 to sacrifice their blood for this land [T 370]
