These Times MAG

By Anonymous

Nine smiling men
perfectly positioned around the
pause for
him to say the words
sign on the dotted line
before they turn and
pat each other on the back.
Six starched American flags
hang behind them
a testament to these times,
(God Bless America.)
to Iraq and international relations.
One ignorant man
imagines a world where
embryos and all,
can pursue their passions,
worries about lives yet to be lived.
Thousands of lonely, lost soldiers
lose and take lives,
lives that will be missed and mourned,
lives that meant something
wonder why this war began.
