It Is The Soldier
It is the soldier, not the reporterWho has given us freedom of the press.It is the soldier, not the poetWho has given us freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the campus organizerWho has given us the freedom to demonstrate.It is the soldier, not the lawyerWho has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the soldierWho salutes the flagWho serves under the flagWhose coffin is draped in the flagWho allows the protester to burn the flag
