Congressional Mishaps

The television bellows out war,

Liberty we must stand tall for.

Pack your bags, kiss families goodbye,

Their last look, don't let them see you cry.

Plenty of time for that on foreign soil,

When you realize you'll die only for the oil.

Willing hearts now left to bleed,

For goodness crumples with signatures of greed.

Here, no moral is too sacred,

When guns protect us in our beds.

Faith traded in for this weapon,

Oh Lord, what have we done?
