Child Soldier - Photo by Eric

Child Soldiers

After the men were gone

They began recruiting children

For the war.

To get volunteers was easy.

All was needed were uniforms

And promises of free jumps from the plane.

Generalissimo said

If he knew it was that easy

They would have started with kids

In the first place.
