Soldier's Tale by Tinashe Muchuri

Once upon a time
Twenty of us set out
to accomplish an assignment.

Ten became prisoners
Five were not lucky with death
Three disappeared
Two of us survived
This is news for my commander.

To the nation
we would say
We killed
fifty rebels
and captured
twenty bandits.
None of us were injured.
