The Warrior Ethos

By       (Page 1 of 3 pages) (View How Many People Read This)   1 comment

The commandant stands,

All misty-eyed, in camoflage,

At the podium in front of his troops.

Intones about honor,

And duty, and "family",

Propagandizing his legion of dupes.

And being a man

Of simple convictions,

He conjures some words from his Bible

To lead them all down

A path to destruction

For which he's averse to be liable.

Isn't it strange

How for every percent

The unemployment increases,

Enlistment goes up
