when we send our kids to war
it should not just be something
we watch on TV
Or listen to as we drive to work
in our SUV , sipping a $5.00 Latte
War means people dying
Cultures clashing ,
Every Bomb dropped , bullet shot,
Soldier deployed is a cost.
It used to be when we sent our Kids to war
we had a draft , a war tax and a blood drive
Now we just change the Channel to
some feel good reality TV.
