"...Disce pati", Latin: "Learn to endure"

Picture: Firefight, Afghanistan

Dig, Dig Work and Trouble,

Fires burning and barrels bubble

The enemy crawls like snakes

In deepest valley they boil and bake


Eyes renewed and clear of fog

Covered slopes of rock and sod

Pitched fork and armored sting


A bleeding wound and bullets zing

For there in no charm in a loud trouble

Fires burning and barrels bubble

Cool it with a calm command

Youth undisturbed on the sand


To what honor’s song do we play?

Only to each other we pledge the day

To come home alive

after 365


Songs of Trouble

Gaining Might

as we gear for the night

Stayin’ alive

with all our might...

The last stanza says it all. War is a horrific experience, and it's sad our young people have to be the victims that give their lives.
