All the pretty maidens

All the pretty maidens lined up in a row

on the sea shore to watch their young men go

off to war for a king they’ll never see or know

one told her beau

kiss me I love you

another said kiss me quick

for we don’t know if there will ever be an end to all of this violence

and still a third

was at a loss for words

and had no kisses to give

only tears to leave on him.

and though it wasn’t much

the soldier still took them
