A VETERAN’S DUTY

Is it not my duty,
to give our soldiers hope,
To share my skills and knowledge,
to help them better cope.
Am I not their example,
A Warrior of past wars,
Who has experienced a sample,
Of horror on foreign shores.
Who can our sons look up to
With any sort of pride,
If all they see is a tear stained face,
Of a veteran who has cried?
‘Tis indeed a veterans duty,
Lest his loyalty has died.
