The Soldier

The Soldier

It is the soldier, not the reporter,

who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet,

who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus organizer,

who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the soldier, not the lawyer,

who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is a soldier who salutes

the flag, who serves under the flag,

whose coffin is draped by the flag,

and who allows the protester to burn the flag.
