Why am I in Iraq?
by JS Schilling

I don't have a crystal stair case,
I have tac's on my floors,
but my friend walked the walk in my home,
so I asked:
"Did you kill a man?"
            "Yes, but he was the enemy."

(ponder, ponder, ponder...)

"what was it like?"

(pause, pause, pause)

"It was good..."

Now I know why I am in Iraq,
"I      like to kill that which is less than me     .
   (we)                                                    (us)
