WHO IS RESPONSIBLE?

I AM OLD BUT I AM HEALTHY
AND FIT
AND I
CAN FIGHT
FOR MY COUNTRY
WHATEVER YOU WANT ME TO DO
I WILL DO
MY MONEY IS YOURS TO TAKE
GIVE TO ALL
US SOLDIERS IN AFGHANISTAN
AND IRAQ
IF IT MEANS THEY CAN COME HOME
TO THEIR FAMILIES…

IF THIS MAY SOUND LAME
AS IN NOT A MISSION
THAT CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED
JUST THINK ABOUT IT…

IF ALL OF US
WHO REALLY WANT
ALL OUR SOLDIERS TO COME HOME
OFFERED TO GIVE OF OURSELVES WHO ARE CONSIDERED
NOT ABLE TO BE ACCEPTED
TO BE SOLDIERS IN OUR WAR
WOULD OFFER
SUCH AS I DO
WHAT WOULD HAPPEN?

I WONDER
WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF
THE GOVERNMENT
MEANING GOVERNMENT OF ALL THOSE RESPONSIBLE
FOR OUR WAR AND
I MEAN THE WAR
IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND SOUTH ASIA.

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF
ALL MOTHERS AND FATHERS AND
SONS AND DAUGHTERS AND
THOSE WHO HAVE LOST LOVED ONES AND
THOSE WHO HAVE WELCOMED THEIR ONES HOME
OFFERED A PEACE OFFERING OF JUST TAKE ALL THAT IS MINE
BUT BRING MY BELOVED HOME TO ME PLEASE
JUST STOP THIS WAR.

PLEASE STOP AND THINK

MAYBE I WOULD HEAR OR READ THAT I SHOULD THINK
BEFORE WRITING THIS BUT
YOU KNOW WHAT I WOULD SAY
BACK
THAT I WOULD NOT BE WRITING THIS IF
I DID NOT LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE I SEE
MY LOVED ONES FOREVER GOING OFF TO WAR.

SO REALLY YOU

WOULD NOT BE READING THIS AND
I WOULD NOT BE WRITING THIS AND
WE ALL WOULD BE MUCH HAPPIER IF
NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE EVER HAD OCCURRED.

SO

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE?
