I JUST HAD TO SAY IT!
BRING THE KIDS HOME

I read the inch high listings
relegated to back news pages
that name our troops
killed in Iraq
Tears flow
Then tears flow again
when I read of the young people
shot down right here at home

It doesn’t make any difference
if it’s an insurgent
or a gang member
that kills our kids
a parent’s heart
is shattered just the same
