A SOLDIER DOES NOT GET PAID TO DIE

i like this poem, because it is totally true. i admirer you greatly for not being afraid to hide your feeling and be ashamed of them like some of us are. we never really stoped to think, what is this war costing us, and why the hell are we doing it? thanx a lot!

Stop It Now

Stop it now
It's only the innocent who get hurt in war

The soldiers
It's their job
They get paid to die

The politicians
They should be dead anyway
For letting it get this far

Stop it now
Before either of you miss another target
And hit more civilians

Or will you admit
Civilians are always targets
And your excuses are as dead as your enemies
And you are just as bad
As you say the other side is

So stop it now
Before you run out of targets
And have to include yourselves
Among the carnage
