It is so sad to see our government gut the privileges and pay of those who stand and fight in our place. What a bunch of pansies controlling the checkbook!

The Lonesome Warrior


They fight and fall for you,
And even when they’re through,
They will continue due;

Back home they’re not in mind,
You have all but resigned,
Don’t care, just leave in bind;

For all they have given,
In you they’ve mistaken,
Your interest – stake in;

Troops keeping you so safe,
But with you so off base,
You could care less and less;

When they return they find,
You’ve closed off your small mind,
And thrown their rights down mine.

I think all warriors feel lonesome at times.
