Profits From Death

profitsfromdeath1

I threw away the flag pins,

tossed the patriotic shirts.

Ditched the yellow ribbons,

the key chains that never worked.

 

 

How easy to be a Patriot,

to support an unjust war

when all one must do is take

a trip to the dollar store.

 

 

No need to make a sacrifice,

no need to think at all.

Ignore the names of the dead

and buy a flag waving doll.
