Bring Them Home

On January of 2007, the people gathered. Bring them home - that is what their signs read, as the people went out to protest. bring them home was the people's cry. All over the Country, it was being heard. Too many soidiers have already died. Our soddiers are fighting a useless WAR. The prices in gas didn't get better. But our soldiers blood was everywhere scattered. Young men and women went out there to fight. they loved their Country - there is no doubt. It has been years and what have we gained, just thousands of soldiers that have lost their lives. it's like they were just sent to meet their deaths. Bring them home - that's what I say. Our children weren't born to die in vain. The Oil Barons should't have no say...

    every one of us vets that have come home you see, has created a part of american history. but, just like in NAM it was an undeclared war, where no one wins except the weapon manufacturers and oil companies. yet why would we have our soldiers die for history ? this is something that i can not see, and you show it in your poetry. thank you so much for this poem.

    so true and generation after generation gets conned into giving up their lifes so one 'dictator' after another can maintain and grow their power and wealth, each person convinced they are helping the down trodden to rise BAH! what a world we would have if children stopped listening to nationaliztic baloney and became CITIZEN's of the WORLD and NOT give allegiance to power mongers!
