Patriot

I gave you my husband.

I gave you my husband and you gave him a uniform

And a security clearance and a machine gun and

Twelve months to die in that desert.

I could thank you for sending him home.

I could thank you because he is alive.

I could thank you for all of his limbs.

But I am not feeling grateful today.
