Patriots

Patriots

What is this priggish rule

That you should insult the war but not the soldier

Thought from a childish school

For they volunteer to go over

Those true patriotic souls

Who join not sadistically or obsequiously

Come a dozen a dime

And used like the rest, only to bleed

And to those others

Who are mistaken for heroes

Please think hard about what you are

Think over this question I wish to pose:

Humanity from land to sea

Does it not apply on both?

Then why is it that those uniformed and shipped

Have a conscience clearing oath?
