Title: The soldiers boot.

I fell into a soldiers boot

It carried me to war

It ran the risk on desert sand

Was swamped by boggy moor

Absorbed the shock of shooting

And ran through fire and flood

Kicked to test for signs of life

Absorbed the beatens blood

It stood me up in glory

Stood strong through hate and pain

Cushioned me to victory

In foxholes full of rain

And now my fightings over

No more my brave pursuits

Sitting here along with pride

Are my old soldiers boots
