Song Brings Silence of Guns at Christmas

Searing notes of a foreign song
Brought silence to the roaring mouths of guns…
Men, bitter enemies fighting before…
Crossed lines, found each were but mothers sons…
Caught in the worlds bloodies family feud
But for a few nights of football and fun…
Then back to real life and killing…
Die or kill until the war is won.
