    Yeah, I guess it comes out sometimes. lol I am pro-military, but I do think our government uses our military sometimes for the wrong reasons. Thank you so much for reading and commenting. :)

    Dani, it feels at times as if war has become just another segment of the news, squeezed in between corporate attacks on the middle class and the latesr celebrity scandal. Does anyone even notice the horrifying 80% increase in suicide by returning veterans?

    And how do we make it better in a political climate where virtually every Republican of any stature is resolute to drag us into still another debilitating war, when we don’t even want the ones we’ve got?

    I like the way you’ve chosen to call attention to this disgraceful practice! Good poem!

    Melody I am all for having an effective military that protects our country, but when we are sending our young men into combat for profit or political gain….that equates to sanctioned murder. I chose to do a poem because rhyme and meter really help to drive some things home. :) Thank you so much sweet Melody.

    Magnificent! The uncompromising truth. In far too many instances military force has been used to seize or secure resources that enrich people, corporations, and families that never see or hear a shot fired in anger.

    Romney “longed to serve in Vietnam,” he claims now, but ran the risk of France instead. Cheney had other priorities during the V-War.

    Greedy, cowardly scoundrels both who sent or would send better people than they to face the fire and do the deeds.

    Loved this poem with its sharp message about the hidden perils of war.
