And oh how the poor die effectively

But not quietly, still forgettable

Patriotic pride via crisp uniform and salute

We dub you brave and good, go now

Altered mind births poison mission

Yesterday’s camera-ready soldier

Now a standard issue zombie

Avert eyes and feet – it’s best to avoid

Another no-name human lump

Tomorrow’s suicide killer – what a shame

Do you know his name, rank or unit?

Tweet, text or just forget away his corpse

Does the truthful stench bother you?

Put your Prada boots on his Arlington ground

Shameful America – it’s all your fault
