3000 Dead - Poem by Steven Taylor

I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me,
according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

3000 men and women that
swore this oath and raised a sword
died on desert battlefields
in 2006, .. year of our lord

so sad that these young patriots, ...
forgot that solemn creed, ..
because, ...
domestic enemies are why, ..
they died... and others bleed

lies and propaganda had
controlled the way they thought
they took up arms convinced that we
were really on the brink of war, ..
they fought, ..
they died, ..
and they never really knew what for! ! !

3000 men and women that
swore an oath and raised a sword
died on desert battlefields
in 2006, .. year of our lord
