How We Won The War

The war was won (chuckle)
but the dying goes on and on,
the boy next door, a woman soldier

from across the country.
We held our buddies in our arms
but they were already gone.

The victory was hailed (chuckle)
by the President aboard a Navy ship
that proclaimed, “Mission Accomplished, Pal!”

But the dying goes on and on.
Watch out for the dismembered bodies
while you celebrate.
