VETERANS BENEFITS HELD HOSTAGEThe Republicans say they love the Vets,
With flag pins and suburban flags on high
They flaunt the symbols of Old Glory’s best,
But turn their backs on those who risked to die..
Can we believe them when they vote against
The care we would provide for wounds and scars
That Vets received while acting in defense,
For us and those who instigated wars?
They walk the halls of Congress and pretend
To care about the lives of those who served,
But last upon their list are the mere men
Who lived and paid with courage and raw nerves.
They relate to the Generals and Brass,
The Vets as only ordnance from the past.
