Honor the Troops

A poem expressing that our troops deserve honor and respect

Honor the troops
Respect them
When they heed our call
Don't give them grief
For being front and center
Maybe we don't always
Make the best decision
But we try to make
The right and just decision
The tyrants must fall
Along with those locked in
A suppressive ideology

We don't start conflicts or wars
We go to keep the peace
Or make the peace
We don't go to subjugate
But to free
We don't go to tear down
But to build

We don’t intentionally hurt
The innocents
We mourn them and ours
No one should have to be hurt
Our hope is that their collective sacrifice
Puts us all in a better world

When Johnny comes marching home
Let's open our arms as a nation
