Security Mom Alert
The solution they're likely to craft
For an Army that's so understaffed
Will get a new name.
They don't want the blame,
So our leaders are dodging "The Draft."
It's a place that they don't want to venture
For the fear of severe public censure.
But the final prescription
Could bring back conscription
Cuz it's not just a job it's indenture.
