Oh, Johny

Encontre este poema en Ingles, escrito por un jovencito y quiero compartirlo (despues voy a tratar de traducirlo, pero suena muy bien en Ingles)

Oh, Johnny went to Germany
He Sailed of a ship across the sea
To Face off with a Nazi
In attempt to set the Jews free
Johnny, even though Hitler needed to stop
Remember the bomb we had to drop
On Hiroshima, why not him?
Should’ve taken him out from the beginning
All angry because he was chemically blind
Propaganda spread to the mind
Fight to live, most chose the winning side
Years later, do they have any pride?
Oh, Johnny, though you never came back
You did what was right, that’s a fact
Yet, your son has more than just your name
But this is the government at the blame
Oh, Johnny, you left your son alone
Just think of the trauma you’ve done
Oh, Johnny, I think you must be blind
Just think of what you’ve left behind
Oh, Johnny enlisted, went to Vietnam
Said bye to his son, wife, and mom
We tried to take it by a storm
Instead, the Vietminh took his arm
Oh, Johnny, what’ve you done
In attempt to stop Communism
Should’ve talked when we had the chance
Because, Johnny, never again will you dance
On the trip to a camp for medical supplies
Your team ran into a trap and caught you by surprise
With a punji stick through the leg,
running as fast as you can
Purple Heart, sent back home,
where no one will understand
Poor and homeless on the streets
Begging at people’s feet
You left your family so they left you
Johnny, you fought a war that wasn’t true
Oh, Johnny, you left your son alone
Just think of the trauma you’ve done
Oh, Johnny, I think you must be blind
Just think of what you’ve left behind
Oh, Johnny, you fight like your dad
You fight like your grandfather,too
Reaction to a terrorist attack
A worthy cause, it’s true
Then re-station in Iraq
For liquid in the ground so black
And trying to get back
For what happened to a tyrants dad
Oh, Johnny, you were noble,
Oh, Johnny, you had honor
But Iraq wasn’t worth the trouble
Oh, Johnny, you’re a goner
Johnny, another son at home
Not taught peace and compassion
Next time trouble knocks on the door
Johnny, your son will die in a pointless war
Oh, Johnny, you left your son alone
Just think of the trauma you’ve done
Oh, Johnny, I think you must be blind
Just think of what you’ve left behind
Oh, Johnny, you left your son alone
Just think of the trauma you’ve done
Oh, Johnny, I think you must be blind
Just think of what you’ve left behind
