I won this years poetry Competition with this very peom. I hope you get chills when you read this. As many before have, reading this poem.

He laid there in the sun baked sand,

A machine gun in his blood covered hand,

The solider that died in battle

Drove in to war like articulate cattle,

Now classed as an afghan hero,

His commanding officer a down right zero,

Sending a man into a zone of war.

His men dying is what he saw.

The worst man in history,

He laid there in the sun baked sand,

A machine gun in his blood covered hand,

The officer in safety,

His family is waiting for him to come.

His family is waiting for him at home.

The sad thing is he is dead.

Without his last rights said.

He laid there in the sun baked sand,

A machine gun in his blood covered hand,
