Throw another wreath

On the Unknown Soldier

Torture a prisoner

Of war.

Partner with an opium smuggler

Drugs, the spoils of war.

Support the troops

With prosthetic legs;

Watch the suicide.

Welcome home

To the unemployed;

Formerly the

over deployed;

Bury the dead,

Memorialize--

The memories.

Dust off the rhetoric and

Cheerlead the heroic corpses.

Praise the arms dealers and

Salute the war profiteers.

Stand your ground

From underneath.

On Memorial Day.
