fighting for something

a chance to vote

to build a voice

the big black wall of names

doesn’t mention agent orange out loud

how do we pay for all these

wars, with lives or money

how much is a soldiers life worth?

they get a day, one day, but what are

we fighting for? liberty, a voice for the people,

global democracy, oil, the right to pollute?

babies need a world to grow into.

soldiers need a world to re cover in,

to take cover in, human respect is setting

what should we do to respect the fallen?
