Good poem

Not exactly funny, but a good read nonetheless.

The Final Inspection
The Soldier stood and faced God, which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining. just as bright as his brass
Step forward you Soldier. How shall I deal with you’?
Have you always turned the other cheek? To My Church. have you been true?"
The Soldier squared his shoulders and said, "No. Lard, I guess I ain' t.
Because those of us who carry guns, can' t always be a saint.
I' had to work most Sundays. and at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I' been violent. because the world is awfully rough.
But. I never took a penny. that wasn' t mine to keep
Though I worked a lot of overtime. when the bills got just to steep.
and I never passed a cry for help. though at times I shoot: with fear.
And sometimes. God forgive me, I' wept unmanly tears
I know I don' t deserve a place. among the people here.
They never wanted me around. except to calm their fears
If you' a place for me here. Lord. It needn' t be so grand.
I never expected or had too much. But if you don' t. I' ll understand."
There was silence all around the chrome. where the saints had often trod.
As the Soldier waited quietly. for the judgement of his God.
Step forward new you Soldier. you' borne your burden well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven' s streets. you' done your time in Hell."

Here is a comment I made a while ago to a post about D-Day.

Through the smoke and ashes only a few remain. Thousands entered through the metal castets that now lay in splinters at the sea's shore. No man, no matter how cruel or twisted, would swim in the water. It does not matter if it is mud or blood, the cost was too great, though you all have been broken, you have seen hell I can guarentee you this. No matter what you do, unless you commit the sins of our enemies, you will never have to see that hell once more. No soldier will regroup in hell because today, they regroup with in the pearly gates. No matter what they believe, they have found their solace and see everyone one of their brothers once more. You fought with a wall of water behind you and you won your day. You made the sun rise here, today so that it may set on our foes across the world. No man here is a coward, you are all men!

That poem was beautiful. I myself am agnostic, so I don't really... well, you know the thrill.
