Old Men get us into wars
And have the Young Men do the killing.
Young Men kill, get killed and maimed.
Could the Old Men have been to war?
Or have their kids (you must be kidding!)?
Let’s lead the Pres, his staff,
The senators and reps,
The power brokers
Through Walter Reed –
Insist they see unspeakable things –
Rendings of mind and body.
Would they think different then?
Have you seen the pictures
Too painful to view?
Foolish Old Men,
Sad, crazed, and angry Young Men,
Crippled for life.
