it's what they do

for Sgt. J. Faught 11 Platoon, Delta Coy., 1 PPCLI
died January 16, 2010, Panjwaii

Sgt.‘s hero shot,
the pillow, his beret

Patricia badge, his golden star
falling, falling in Kandahar,

his flag, the maple leaf
drapes dust of afternoon

beside his coffin placed
two tins of Coke,

an ISAF badge
a soldier tin of chew;

it’s what they do boys,
it’s what they do,

two tins of Coke,
an ISAF badge,

a soldier tin of chew.
