Zebras look a lot like horses,
Drafted into the armed forces.
Wearing uniforms with lots of stripes.
They eat their chow and air their gripes.

Now zebras don't look for a fight,
While Nations have to prove their Might.
So the former graze and eat some grass,
While the latter kick each others ass.

Kick Global Butt

William's Whimsical Words:

When they trot into the battle,
All herded together just like cattle.
So much cannon fodder set in motion,
By leaders who sit across the ocean.
