Look. Pacifists.
We agree .
Us. The military, the Soldiers, the Sailors. The Airmen.
We might not like your rhetoric, but most of us understand it.
We believe in your right to say it.
Your freedom of speech.
But it’s on our shoulders it stands.
That freedom of speech.
So we don’t want thanks.
Or patronising hate.
We who fight the wars you don’t ask for.
And we don’t make.
Peace is what we’re prepared to die for.
We hate war too.
