Your Words

By Munezero Oneal, Kabale Integrated School, Uganda

Soldier, soldier

Tall and slim

Always matching in the woods

Trap! Trap! go his boots


Soldier, soldier

Pump and strong

Always clad in green and black

Left, right, go his steps


Soldier, soldier

Armed to teeth

Always crawling in the thick bush

Ping! ping! go the bullets


Soldier, soldier

War is raging

Where do we go and hide ourselves

Boom! Boom! go the bombs
