WHY DID YOU NOT RUN

                       WHY DID YOU NOT RUN


 Like thunder, explosions from different sites,


 Their weapons loaded, death was in their eyes.


 You saw them marching in the distance my friend,


 Closing in on you were those who did not know you.


 Did they leave you there alone, turn their backs and go,


 Were the men with you smarter,  were they pleading 
 With you?

 It should not have been this way, you were not left 
 To die,

 No sense can ever be made of this tragedy as I wonder 
 Why?

 My friend, why did you not run as were coming an 
 Army of guns,

 As I was told you must retreat, why did you remain and 
 Wait?

 I received the news from one at my door that you were 
 No more,

 The words I heard were that you were brave and a hero,


 This I would like to believe as you died needlessly.
