A Purse For My Salary!
I joined because the salary was good.
They gave me an AK 47, a uniform and a helmet.
Everything except for a purse which I bought,
To put my salary in.
In the first fight I killed a boy.
Though I lost my helmet, I didn’t lose my purse.
Got wounded in the head,
But my salary was safe.
The second fight was worse.
We killed a few of them, and they killed a few of us,
I was wounded again,
But I didn’t lose my purse.
In the third fight I died,
I stepped on a mine which blew off both my legs.
As my eyes slowly closed, I cursed!
As they grabbed my purse from me.
