 Sacrifice your life

For an insecure,

Unthinking,

Ungrateful majority

Who in death

Will only acknowledge you half-heartedly


Few of you survive the wars

But you do so rarely unscathed

Forever regarded with disdain

Like the blemish of an entire nation


Our heroes, our soldiers

Who sacrifice so much

More than we should ever ask


They do so for the safety

And well-being of strangers

They will never know

But they come back to us

Only to be treated worse

Than the nation's worst tyrants and terrorists

When will this end?
