Mister Secretary

20 Dec 2004

Mister Secretary
I know you don’t know my name
I know that you are truly grateful
That you are not the only one to blame

Mister Secretary
I have just one demand
If I die in this godforsaken place
Sign the letter by hand

You can send me off to fight your dirty jihad
You can hang me out to dry
You can sign me up let them cut me to pieces
Just put your John Hancock on the line

Mister Secretary
I know you don’t read the news
I know we fight with the army we have
Not the army we’d choose


Mister Secretary
I know there’s solid evidence
I know that all the armor in the world
Is not a sufficient defense
