Oh Invincible Ones
by Rick Tornello

Oh young invincible ones
A slight cold, a fever, mere chills
Overcome by many;
Though carry you might to others
Who, not so strong or young,
Too young to fight for their life.

Oh young invincible ones,
The money for your college comes from?
when gone then what?
What are you trained for?
Self-interest alone should prevent such action
But young and invincible
On the beaches, what have you to fear?
