War, No. 3

War, No. 3

 

When you go to war

your sons and daughters die.

Is this okay with you?

 

When you go to war

your daughters are raped

by their peers and officers.

 

When you go to war

your sons come home

as murderers.

 

When you go to war

your children return crippled—

maybe in body, certainly in brain.

 

                                                Is this okay with you?
