Step by Step
Michael marched another mile
Left, right, left, right
His boots were hurting all the while
Too tight, too tight
The sweat was falling from his brow
Drip, drop, drip, drop
How much further to go now?
Must stop, must stop
The sergeant major stands and shouts
Heads high! Heads high!
Tomorrow, we’ll be shipping out
Good bye, who’ll die?

The journey will unquestionably be tough
March, march, left, right
They hear her shout
The time has come to fight
People of all sizes
Large and little, large and little
Our mission has started, and the moon arises
Head on. Feet brittle.
This army is formed
Once, and for all.
Elizabeth and Aaliah, International School of Cape Town
Their feet are scraping through the sand,
Scritch scratch; scritch scratch,
To the rhythm of the band,
Tip tap; tip tap.
Far too hot,
Yawn cough; yawn cough,
Their weapons were at the ready,
When will it stop?
They resist the heat,
Death and desperation,
Tears drop; tears drop,
Family in their minds,
Praying for their lives,
Please stop; please stop
The sounds of guns meet their ears,
Oh lord; oh lord,
The enemy is near,
The footsteps are clear,
Rivers we ford; rivers we ford.
Mia, Keelie-Rose, Shayla - Great Yarmouth High School
Screwed in anticipation
My god, my god
Hell on earth
Die all, Die all
Here all, hear all
Was it his choice to come to war?
By Kyla, Isabel, Imogen and Reneazha
West Hatch High School
Michael can't walk another mile
Bullets flying, guns firing,
Soldiers saluting, memories dying
Blood spilling blood spilling
Too sad, too sad
His heart is not going to last another beat
We're in war, we're in war
He drops down to shake the ground
By Alex James, Tom Burton-Gidman and Conrad Yip
