I’ve Heard people saying that soldiers aren’t people

And yet it seems to me it is the soldier

Not the poet

Who gives us the freedom of speech.

The news media is full of stories about the horrors of war

How the soldiers are wrong

Yet it is the Soldier

not the reporter

who gives us the freedom of the press

people gather to protest the war

they say we are wrong

yet it is the soldier

not the demonstrater

who gives us the right to demonstrate

 they prosecute soldiers for doing what their told 

yet it is the soldier

not the lawyer

who gives us the right to a fair trial

people say we have our freedoms

they take them for granted

Yet it is the Soldier

Who salutes the flag

Who serves beneath the flag

Whos Coffin is draped by the flag

That allows the protestor to burn the flag

So it seems to me

If you cant stand behind the troops

Feel free to stand in front of them!
