THE SELFISH WHINER
(Disabled Veterans)

Charles J. Ingerson: The Selfish WhinerGoing to his nations needs
away from family and friends
many times into harm’s way
other’s to support those there;

Finding meals and pay short
worrying about families alone
yet giving service some all
others some doing their duty;

Thus returning from the front
some broken some in shrouds
unable then to provide a meal
seeking to have wounds heal;

Now facing medical costs high
without means or another way
the nation helping with the VA
these massive bills then to pay;

Yet the nation seeks to cancel
benefits which help these vets
asking them to pick up the costs
left stranded in tempest tossed;

Then their President speaks
their Commander-in-Chief
calling them selfish and more:
even unpatriotic whiners!
