Order of Battle

Memo To:

 

The President and Secretary of Defense;

senators and congressmen

who vote for war but never’ve been in one;

generals and colonels who seldom’ve

looked an enemy soldier in the eye;

men and women over 18

who’ve never been in combat;

mothers and wives proud

to send their sons and lovers

to die in another country:

 

You take point.
