For the young man who left a leg in Iraq
for the head injury patient next to him
who will never see from his left eye
who will continue life
with the IQ of a five year old
for the baby born without an arm
because her dad was exposed
to depleted uranium
for all the loved ones that now visit graves

Support would be
an honest foreign policy
not extended tours of duty
not a White House
with a corporate agenda
to privatize the oil fields
for their friends
not a press that prints verbatim
White House talking points
not a Congress that won’t speak up
not a public lost at the Mall
lost in debt

Support would be
a moment of truth

Support would be
to bring them home

Bring them home now
