• A knight in shining armor
    never sweeps you off your feet.
    He knows what he must do,
    even to make us weep.

    His future is blood and battle,
    not at house or home with wife.
    He will continue to travel
    and be in danger and strife.

    Marching in his army,
    a soldier on the track,
    Must love what he does
    or end on his back.

    Death is not to fear,
    not in this job of his.
    To fear would be fatal
    and would not help for this.
