    Subject: Who care if a soldier dies!?


    Take a man and put him alone,
    Put him twelve thousand miles from home.
    Empty his heart of all but blood,
    Make him live in sand, in mud.
    This is the life I have to live,
    This the soul to God I give.
    You have your parties and drink your beer,
    While young men are dying over here.
    Plant your signs on the White House lawn;
    "Lets get out of Iraq".
    Use your signs and have your fun,
    Then refuse to use a gun.
    There's nothing else for you to do,
    Then I'm supposed to die for you?
    There is one thing that you should know;
    And that's where I think you should go!
    I'm already here and it's too late.
    I've traded all my love for all this hate.
    I'll hate you till the day I die.
    You made me hear my buddy cry.
    I saw his leg and his blood shed,
    Then I heard them say, "This one's dead".
    It was a large price for him to pay,
    To let you live another day.
    He had the guts to fight and die,
    To keep the freedom you live by.
    By his dying, your life he buys,
    But who gives a F*** if a Soldier dies!

    If you give a f*** repost it and let ppl know you do
    If you are in the Military add your name to the list
