Poem: Toy Soldiers

Wind them up watch them titter 
All the clockwork soldiers
Marching in their rows
Left right left right
Salute
Then they all fall down
No sense in crying over broken toys
When mom and dad will produce more
Wind them up and send them off
Marching along to war again
All the good little soldiers
Toys in the hands of careless children
Pretending to be heroes
Behind TV screens
