For the People

For the people, they stand tall;
For the people, they give their all;
On their future they don’t dwell;
For a battle’s a ferocious hell.

For the people, is their battle cry;
For the people, they fight and die;
In great reverence none condemn;
For the people remember them.

The Landing’s Field

An easy war in the planning,
Huge numbers in the manning.
Ambition by the King of Dareed,
Powered by U MAMA’s greed.
Big profits for some people.<
