Glory of War! By L. Don Oliver

The cannon roars, A rifle _; A soldier dies, All for ___;

The bell rings, On Village ___; There's no rejoicing, That's abiding __;

Six gun salute, A trumpet ___; Another soldier buried, In hallowed __;

A mother cries, Her child _; She returns to, An empty _;

That's the moral, End of __, In any war, There's no __;

The Ten Morals By L. Don Oliver (Revised)

It is morally right to have, Faith for what you believe; It is morally wrong to worship, What others falsely conceive;

It is morally wrong to assail others, Even the words we speak; It is morally right to rest, On one day of each week;

It is morally right to honor parents, Even if there should be strife; It is morally wrong to purposely, Take another person's life;

It is morally right to be honest, To the one you're committed to; It is morally wrong to take, That which doesn't belong to you;

It is morally wrong to utter untruths, Most often it leads to distress; It is morally wrong to be jealous, Of what others do possess;

I've always lived by the "Golden Moral", Of everything that I perceive; "To always do for others, What I wish them to do for me";
