WHAT THE WAR WAS ABOUT

Some said rubber plantations,

some oil

 

some said gold,

some dominoes,

 

some said land reform,

some Reds,

 

some said rice,

some contraband,

 

some said John,

some Lyndon,

 

some said napalm,

some lice,

 

some said herpes,

some pot,

 

some said hippies,

some pigs.

 

Nobody asked us.
