The cries are rabid,
Unearthly the howls.
Baying for blood,
And bloodthirsty growls

Before urging for war
Please reflect on life
And think of those
Who will pay the price

Of Widows somewhere
Lonely and sad.
And innocent Children
Missing their Dads

The uniform will travel,
Wrapped in the flag.
Along with his trunk
For the last time
