The Evening News
by Dalvan

In 1970 the evening news showed a body count
every night at 6 PM
Viet Cong: 47 US: 15
Every night more of them are killed than us
that meant we were winning
but we didn't

Today the evening news shows a body count
More of them die than us
So maybe we are winning this time
