GRAB A GUN OR SHUT UP

To state that war is never proper
is not a valid point-of-view;
for sometimes war is justified,
and is one we should pursue.

Things are not so cut and dry
and all wars aren’t the same;
and often, when the stakes are high,
it could pay to join the game.

There are no guarantees we’ll win
when the dice of war are thrown,
no magic pill that will prevent
the adverse reactions known.

War is hell yet serves us well
when our lives are on the line
and Jesus Christ is someplace else
saving souls and being Divine.

So, join the ranks and fight like hell
to preserve our freakin’ way of life,
or take your butts back to the rear
as we save your kids and wife.
