War

Can you see what you have done 
to our daughters and sons 

They went away to fight in your war 
Some returned home displaying 
behavioral problems; traumatized and lost 

Can you see what you have done 
to our daughters and sons 

Others returned home with missing limbs 
You gave them a prosthetic leg or arm 
Then you say they are healed 

How many more wars do they have to fight 
before you can see the devastation and  
destruction, the loss of so many lives 

Can you see what you have done 
to our daughters and sons
