Thoughts

Let’s just take a minute to think
about all those dead soldiers
killed by all those other soldiers.

Let’s just take a minute to think.

I knew this lucky soldier once.
He lived through his war and 
he never talked about it at all.

I bet he used to think about it, though.

When his war was over, all he did was
drive around in a truck, delivering stuff
like baby food and bags of grass seed.

He got to be an old man. He’s gone now.

I bet a lot of young dead soldiers
don’t regret the choices they made;
but I bet a lot of them do,

don’t you think?

I guess the war will never end.
Like it or not, we’re all veterans.
Let’s just think it over.
