Constitutional Emergency

Note especially the contrasts with politicians toward the end of the poem! Sound familiar?

A Soldier Died Today....

He was getting old and paunchy
And his hair was
falling fast,
And he sat around the VFW,
Telling stories of the
past.

Of a war that he once fought in
And the deeds that he
had done,
In his exploits with his buddies;
They were heroes,
every one.

And ‘tho sometimes to his neighbors
His tales
became a joke,
All his buddies listened quietly
For they knew
where of he spoke.

But we’ll hear his tales no longer,
For ol’
Bob has passed away,
And the world’s a little poorer
For a
Soldier died today.

He won’t be mourned by many,
Just his
children and his wife.
For he lived an ordinary,
Very quiet sort
of life.

He held a job and raised a family,
Going quietly on
his way;
And the world won’t note his passing,
‘Tho a Soldier died
today.

When politicians leave this earth,
Their bodies lie in
state,
While thousands note their passing,
And proclaim that they
were great.

Papers tell of their life stories
From the time
that they were young
But the passing of a Soldier
Goes unnoticed,
and unsung.

Is the greatest contribution
To the welfare of our
land,
Some jerk who breaks his promise
And cons his fellow man?

Or
the ordinary fellow
Who in times of war and strife,
Goes off to
serve his country
And offers up his life?

The politician’s
stipend
And the style in which he lives,
Are often
disproportionate,
To the service that he gives.

While the
ordinary Soldier,
Who offered up his all,
Is paid off with a medal
And
perhaps a pension, small..

It’s so easy to forget them,
For
it is so many times
That our Bobs and Jims and Johnnys,
Went to
battle, but we know,

It is not the politicians
With their
compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom
That our country
now enjoys.

Should you find yourself in danger,
With your
enemies at hand,
Would you really want some cop-out,
With his ever
waffling stand?

Or would you want a Soldier--
His home, his
country, his kin,
Just a common Soldier,
Who would fight until the
end.

He was just a common Soldier,
And his ranks are growing
thin,
But his presence should remind us
We may need his like
again.

For when countries are in conflict,
We find the
Soldier’s part
Is to clean up all the troubles
That the
politicians start.

If we cannot do him honor
While he’s here
to hear the praise,
Then at least let’s give him homage
At the
ending of his days.

Perhaps just a simple headline
In the
paper that might say:
“OUR COUNTRY IS IN MOURNING,
A SOLDIER DIED
TODAY..”

So so beautiful

God Bless all who fought and died for our country.

And it may come to another fight within my own country, that I served, forty years ago.....May God protect those who may have to put the battle armour back on to protect future generations from the current Tyrannical Government officials.

I was on the USS Samuel Gompers, AD-37, which is now been sunk off the coast of North Carolina as conservation rec for the fishes....I am glad to be home and had the chance to live in this Grand old Lady before the Demorats and the Rino's have virtually destroyed this country in 6 years......
