We said troops should stay and fight,
They said troops should leave tonight.
We said vote upon that measure,
They expressed extreme displeasure.
We asked them to back their word,
They said we are too absurd.
We were told we're a "disgrace;"
Their vote showed they have no case.
They said the vote was a "deception,"
We said they're gearing for election.
Meanwhile, troops are in Iraq,
Fighting and under attack.
Let "we" and "they" for once agree;
Troops keep us free to disagree.
