“When you're left wounded on

Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,

Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,

And go to your God like a soldier”

“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.”

“Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.

“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,

for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”

“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .”
“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

“Nobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.

“Fixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man."
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

The Soldier stood and faced God


Which must always come to pass

He hoped his shoes were shining

Just as bright as his brass

"Step forward you Soldier,

How shall I deal with you?


Have you always turned the other cheek?


To My Church have you been true?"


"No, Lord, I guess I ain't


Because those of us who carry guns


Can't always be a saint."

I've had to work on Sundays

And at times my talk was tough,

And sometimes I've been violent,

Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny

That wasn't mine to keep.

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills got just too steep,

The Soldier squared his shoulders and said

And I never passed a cry for help

Though at times I shook with fear,

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place

Among the people here.

They never wanted me around


Except to calm their fears.


If you've a place for me here,


Lord, It needn't be so grand,


I never expected or had too much,


But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was silence all around the throne

Where the saints had often trod

As the Soldier waited quietly,

For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you Soldier,

You've borne your burden well.

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,

You've done your time in Hell."

Don’t Cry For Me Old Man Congo
Deafening Crescendo Echoes
Rivers of Tears Will Not Suffice
Suffering With No Respite

For Too Long An Unbearable Toll
Long Sheltering In Dark Shadows
Borne of Endless Pain And Sorrow
What Yield Us Congolese Tomorrow

Don’t Cry For Me Old Man Congo
For Glitters And Gold We Were Sold
Reverberating, Smothering Throes
Is There No Peace For Pious Souls

My Children – Smiles Long Eroded
Their Youthful Rights – Now Corroded
Ravaged – Then Child Combatant
Still A Child If He Be Fathomed

Don’t Cry For Me Old Man Congo
There Is Enough of Weeping Widows
Left But Undying Hopes And Prayers
Not In Vain Shall Come Peacemakers

UN Flag Shall Now Enable
Putting End To Bloody Staples
Not In A Day It Shall Not Go
Soon Shall Reap The Seeds Sowed

Don’t Cry For Me Old Man Congo
Future Generations This Will Be Told
UN Kept The Faith We Looked Ahead
On These We Founded Our United States
Yo Congolese- You Deserve No Less
Old Man Congo’s Very Best

Don Too
I-1298
