They Heard The Call

They Heard The Call
By Pauline Harris

They heard the call
As we were at war
Hopped on trains
Stopped at the Canteen 
For a nibble and dance
Drank some coffee
Signed up to fight
A uniform issued
And dogtags given
Caught a train to train
Then off to war
Focused on mission
Freedom for all
Justice served
Peace to come
But first a war 
To be fought and won
Most of us here 
Are late teenagers
A few younger
Snuck inside
All to fight
For our rights
And a voice
To vote
And so our path
Is shown
Drops made
Trenches dug
Food rationed
Struggles made real
Casualties discovered 
Not all who join
Will return home
Sadness may linger
But brave souls
Continue to enlist
And others support 
Those who join
To become
United in mission
As freedoms won
Victory complete 
When voices vote
For unending peace
