God, Please Don’t Strike Our Military Purple

Always has been personal pride of warriors wearing military thread
Confident and firm stride, be it off duty or on parade being led
Spic and span, and ever so proud, the cloth has always been worn
Long, long before today’s mindless WOKE vandals were born
Countless columns marched with pride and purpose in both peace and war
Wearing khaki, jungle green, Cams and other military shades seen before
Worn from the youngest cadet to the aged warrior grounding arms for the last time
Forever neath eagle eyed masters of discipline with shrieking orders clearly defined
To ensure discipline, unity and purpose are developed as columns train for war
And where edicts to dress in purple for a special cause are never, ever more
Please God, don’t give WOKE purple paint, if and when they knock on your door
