Just a name

War in Iraq
began Mar. 2003

To most of you
They’re just a name
Another statistic
They became

They weren’t seeking
Soldiers in war
For our safekeeping

They went to Iraq
A place far away
Restoring the peace
Would it come one day

How many captured
How many maimed
How many lives
Has this war claimed

To you they’re just
A name you did see
In the late afternoon
While watching TV

To their family and friends
This loss is so great
They were willing to fight
And not hesitate

To most of you
They’re just a name
I can’t help but think
George Bush feels the same
