WHO HAVE YOU KILLED?

Who have you killed? What was it like?
Did it give you the power of the man with the mike?
Did you think it not murder taking a life,
Be it done with a cannon or a blade of a knife.
When you invade another country its murder you see,
When you kill and slaughter folk who are free.
The bellicose officers that you all obey,
Know it is murder and you do what they say.
Why not admit it; you know it is true,
Though you may not know what it is that you do.
Our young soldiers are sacrificed I ask what for,
Is it in defence of your own country that you go to war.
Or simply because you are robotically bold,
Obeying your master doing whatever you’re told.
