Poem on the Stand Fast Print

Stand Fast
By Ian Coate

Stand fast our Aussie Diggers; we need you at the front. 
Our freedoms demand maintenance, which you must bear the brunt.
We don’t always appreciate the freedoms that you’ve won.
  We soon forget in peacetime the duties that you’ve done.
But do your job in spite of us; ignore our ignorance.
Defend us in our time of need with constant vigilance.
For without you there, to bar the pass, enemies will get through. 
And on that day, we’ll wish we had, maintained support for you.
