1Why Are They There?

Best Poem of Ian Bartlett

Why Are They There?
Why are they there?


Why does he tread into the sniper's sights?
Why forge unflinchingly ahead
Amid the bullets and the IEDs?
On whose authority and by what right?
Steps into territory, not led
But leading by example, if you please,
A troop of adolescents keen to fight
For the ideals . . .
