The bottomline is more than the price tag
No boots on the ground,
but there’re drones in the sky
not to mention the airstrikes at night.
This crisis with ISIS
is cause for concern
as we partner with allies to fight.
On the frontlines of terror
we dare not shrink back.
What’s at stake is the life we have known.
The freedom from fear
and the freedom from want
and the freedom to reap what we’ve sown.
The cost of this conflict
cannot be contained.
The price tag of freedom will rise.
We must stop these beheadings
and we’ll pay what we must
so to purchase the peace justice buys.
