 So Sorry

Met a man at the post office
said "I think we were right
to invade Iraq,
but when I say we,
I don't mean me
or my family."

Met a man at the gas station,
said "We have to fight
the terrorists,
but when I say we,
I don't mean me
or my family."

Met a man at the hardware store
said "We got to kill them
in Iraq instead of here,
but when I say we,
I don't mean we
or my family."

Met a man at the bank
said "We got to
stabilize the Middle East,
but when I say we,
I don't mean me
or my family."

Met a friend at a funeral,
his boy was killed in Iraq,
the triangle flag
was given to him,
he just shook his head
and looked away.
