Toy Soldiers

The children play with the toy soldiers,

Battling for candy and toys.

They throw around the toy soldiers,

Adding their own background noise.

 

They burn and break the toy soldiers,

Never letting them rest.

They’re never proud of the toy soldiers,

Even when they do their best.

 

They push forward the toy soldiers,

Right up to the front lines.

They fight with the toy soldiers,

Who never complains or whines.

 

They damage the toy soldiers,

And either fix them up or throw them away.

They doom death to the toy soldiers,

For few will return from war today.
