“Love the Player”
Love the player, but hate the game
And never the two confuse.
“Support the Troops,” the man will say,
Or these freedoms we will lose.
But freedoms have been withering
Just as our brave men die.
Share prices in the stratosphere–
A rocket-propelled lie.
“Support the Troops” the truth be told
betrays a cunning craft:
“Let’s encourage every volunteer
So they don’t restart the draft”.
