Politician: Would You Send Yourself?
You might send someone else's child:
But would you send your own
to where dying is mild, welcomed and wanted
compared to crush of brain and and blood and bone?
And if your son or daughter waves
'goodbye' while marching in the ranks:
would they know you're thinking how war pays
big bucks to manufacturers and banks?
Do you think you'll really care
